Armagh minor hurlers face Donegal in Letterkenny this Saturday at 12pm. This game will have no effect on the league final places as Armagh failed to defeat Derry in testing conditions in Derrynoose last Saturday. Had Armagh of been victorious over the oak leaf county, they would be traveling to Donegal looking to pick up 2 points which would have brought them to the league final.
Derry started brightly in the first half and with Armagh only registering two points in 30 minutes of hurling, Derry were well ahead at half time. Armagh came out in the second half with a renewed purpose and registered 2-7. Derry were the eventual winners on the day winning on a scoreline of 0-19 to 2-9. Donegal this weekend will also be a tough task for Armagh as their results have been something similar throughout the league. At this stage both teams will be playing for pride and Armagh will be hoping to keep third place.
Armagh, with a number of injuries to key players, will be forced to make changes to last week’s team but this shouldn’t affect the boys too much, as they have trained very hard together all year and know each other very well at this stage. So here’s hoping the lads can finish off the league campaign with another good win and carry that form into the upcoming Ulster championship.
