Tough test will stand to Derry
Antrim v Derry
Sunday, Casement Park, 3.45pm
Derry’s senior camogs will this Sunday head to Casement Park to take the next step in their effort to regain the Ulster senior title.
The Oak Leaf girls have come out on the wrong side in their recent battles with Antrim, but Derry attacker Karen Kielt is fully confident that her side have got what it takes to turn the tables on the Saffrons.
Derry qualified for the decider thanks to an extra-time win over Down in the semi-final, a stern challenge and a psychological boost which will stand to them as they prepare for Sunday’s provincial showdown, and Kielt insists that her side have left no stone unturned in their quest for glory combined with a so far successful ‘one game at a time’ approach.
“So far everything has gone well for us. We’ve set out and achieved everything that we set out to do, but we know that the real tests come in championship.
“John A Mullan has kept telling us all year that it’s all about the next game, and that has served us well so far. This Sunday will be no different.
“It’s our biggest game of the year so far, and we’re looking at nothing other than Sunday’s Ulster final and going all out for a win.”
