The 2018 Intermediate Final will see @laoislgfa
go to battle with Wicklow after their respective semi-final wins today.
In Pearse Park, Wicklow continued their scoring threat from the opening half and a third goal from Marie Kealy all but sealed the contest for the Garden County. Three points from Meadhbh Deeney and points from Jackie Kinch, Sarah Miley and Laura Hogan ended the game as a contest and sealed the Division Four Champions place in the Leinster Intermediate Final.
In Bellefield, there was late drama as Laois overturned a five point half time deficit to win by one point, 2-11 to 1-13. Laois meant business from early in the half, scoring 1-01 in a minute; Eva Galvin finding the back of the net and Emma Lawlor splitting the posts. A Bernie Breen goal re-established the lead for Wexford but Laois never gave up, chipping away at the scoreboard, Lawlor and Claire Conlon particularly efficient. Laura Nerney levelled the sides with five minutes to go with Conlon and Lawlor adding one each to put them two in front. Caitriona Murray did reduce the gap to one but the Division Three Champions ran out of time and it's Mná Laoise who march on to the Leinster Final on July 1st in Dr. Cullen Park.
Wicklow 3-13, Longford 0-04
Laois 2-11, Wexford 1-13
