Laois Suffer Momentum Loss After Westmeath Defeat

The Lake County were commanding winners over Willie Maher's side on Saturday.

Laois' preparation for a meeting with Offaly in the Joe McDonagh Cup Final did not go to plan over the weekend.

The O'Moore County were beaten for the first time in Championship action on Saturday when Westmeath managed to deliver their best performance of the campaign on their last outing.

Niall Mitchell signaled the Maroon's intent when he raised a green flag in the opening five minutes.

The Clonkill man helped himself to a second goal in the first period, while a much changed Laois outfit had no answer to their opponents who finished this season with a double-score victory.

The final score in Cusack Park was Westmeath 2-26 Laois 0-16.

Willie Maher's team are next out in the Joe McDonagh Cup Final on Saturday June 8th.
