Termon are bidding for place in the Ulster Ladies Senior Club Championship final when they face Armagh champions, Carrickcruppen this Sunday.

For the second week in-a-row the Donegal champions are back on the road with the Orchard County ladies having the home advantage. The game is in Carrickcruppen. (throw-in 2pm)

Termon got their bid for a second Ulster championship underway last Sunday with a very impressive first round win over the Cavan standard bearers, Lacken.

Geraldine McLaughlin, Termon’s goal scoring ace, scored 6-4 in last Sunday’s demolition of the Cavan champions in Cavan. Termon won that game 7-10 to 2-10 pulling up with Laura Gallagher and Olive McCafferty also turning in big performances.

By all accounts, this weekend’s opponents Carrickcruppin, will provide Trevor Alcorn’s girls with a much sterner test.

Carrickcruppin dethroned a highly fancied Clann Eireann, in the Armagh final and they followed that win up with a 3-15 to 0-8 whipping of Newtownbutler from Fermanagh, in the first round.

Armagh senior Caroline O’Hanlon is their most experienced player in what is otherwise a very young side who are only appearing at this stage of the competition for the second time.

The other semi-final, which is also on Sunday’s sees, Dunaghmoyne of Monaghan, go head to head with St. Paul’s, Antrim.

Meanwhile, Milford are also flying the Donegal flag in the Ulster Intermediate championship, semi-final this weekend.

Marty Barrett’s girls booked their place in the last four with a narrow two point win over Mayobridge from Down, in the first round on Sunday last in Moyle View Park. Milford won a six goal thriller on a 3-10 to 3-8 scoreline.

They face Cappagh from Tyrone, on Sunday, in Cappagh. (throw-in 2 pm). The Tyrone champions overcame Belturbet from Cavan 1-14 to 0-6, in the first round.

Grange from Armagh play, Glen from Derry in the other Intermediate semi-final.
