Galway minors keep Connacht four-in-a-row on track with Mayo victory

The Tribesmen ran out three-point winners at Tuam Stadium.

Galway 0-15 Mayo 1-9

Leitrim 2-14 Sligo 0-13

GALWAY CONTINUED THEIR provincial four-in-a-row chase with victory over neighbours Mayo in the Connacht minor football championship this evening.

The Tribesmen ran out three-point winners at Tuam Stadium, handing Mayo their second defeat of the round robin phase and effectively eliminating them.

Jack Mahon’s first-half strike put Mayo into a 1-4 to 0-6 lead but Galway had turned the tables by the break and went in 0-11 to 1-6 in front.

They pulled clear into a four-point lead with 10 minutes to play and despite Mayo’s best efforts, Donal O’Fathartha’s side made it three wins from three to extend their 100% start and secure their place in the final on 13 July.

In Markievicz Park, Leitrim recorded their first win of the campaign with a brilliant seven-point win over Sligo, 2-14 to 0-13.

The final round of games on 6 July sees Leitrim face Galway, while Roscommon play Sligo knowing that a point would mathematically seal their place in the final.
