Eirgrid Connacht U20 Football Championship Quarter-Final

Mayo 1-06 Galway 1-04


Mayo edged past Galway in atrocious conditions at the Connacht Centre of Excellence this evening.

The sides were level at the break with Mayo playing against a gale force breeze in that opening half.

Jack Fallon scored the crucial goal for Mayo early in the second half with the subs introduced by Maurice Sheridan also playing an important role.

Galway did manage to claw their way back in with a late goal on the hour mark through James McLoughlin but Mayo dug deep to grind out a two point win in the end.

Maurice Sheridan's troops will now travel to Carrick-on-Shannon next Wednesday evening to take on Leitrim in the Connacht semi-final.

Afterwards the Mayo boss gave his reaction to Midwest Sport.
