Goal-den girls: Westmeath power their way to All-Ireland final

By Damien Maher

An opportunistic goal from Anna Jones propelled Westmeath ladies into the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Football final on 5 September as the Lake County overcame a stringent test from Kildare, at Parnell Park, Dublin last Sunday.

The Mullingar Shamrocks star pounced to fist the ball to the net in the 55th minute, after substitute Johanna Maher’s speculative shot dropped short and was parried by the Kildare goalkeeper.

Seán Finnegan’s charges will face Wexford in the final at Croke Park following their 3-6 to 1-9 victory over Kildare. The Slaneysiders lost to Westmeath in the group stages, but defeated Laois last Sunday, 2-11 to 2-9.
