For the second year in succession, Mid Antrim Ladies make the short journey to Maghera to play Mid Ulster in the 2nd round of the Plate Competition.

The corresponding fixture last year was an evenly contested affair with both sides holding the lead at various stages of the contest.

However, the Mid Ulster ladies edged ahead over the closing ends to earn a 12 shot win.

Can the Mid Antrim team overturn that result? The answer to that one should be known around tea time this Saturday.
