Record alert! Mayo star produces incredible display of sharpshooting to score 9-12

Yes, you read that right.

You have to feel for the opposition defence.

A WEEK AFTER starring in the Connacht Ladies Football final, Cora Staunton continued her prolific form yesterday as she plundered 9-12 in a club game.

The 9-time All Star is one of the most decorated players in the game but this is surely a new record as she tore the opposition apart during Carnacon’s demolition job.

In the end, the scoreline was a resounding 15-19 to 1-5.

Last week, Staunton scored 1-15 in the provincial final for Mayo and was awarded the player-of-the-match award for her efforts, although they were ultimately in vain as Galway prevailed by a single point.

Nonetheless, Mayo are certainly a side to watch in this year’s championship with Staunton in red hot form.

As one of her team-mates put it, “thank god she’s on our team.”
