Orchard pick Sligo off at their own will

Armagh 2-17 Sligo 0-09

Antrim proved far to strong for Sligo last Sunday as they were easy 14 point winners at the Athletic Grounds. Armag hwere crusing at half time, 0-10 to 0-02 and goals by Andy Murnin and Ethan Rafferty added glosh to the scoreline in the second half. It was Rafferty who was the key man as he kicked 1-03 from play.

Sligo will be very dissapointed with their performance, Armagh looked streets ahead of them in terms of pace, fitness and general skills (kicking, catching). A massive improvement will be needed from them if they are to surivive in division 3. They can make amends on Sunday when they host Wexford, while Armagh will travel to Mullingar to play Westmeath.

Player of the Match: Ethan Rafferty (Armagh) kicked 1-03 from play in a fine performance and Kieran McGeeney will be hoping he can produce more similar displays in the months to come.
