IN A REPEAT of their provincial decider, neighbours Galway and Mayo are squaring off in Croke Park this afternoon with a place in the All-Ireland final at stake.

With Galway leading by three points at the start of the second half, Mayo’s Niamh Kelly produced a captain’s moment of magic as she single-handedly clawed her side back to parity.

The Moy Davitts forward gathered possession not far from halfway before marauding into Galway territory, a clever solo dummy putting her in on Lisa Murphy’s goal and a tidy finish levelling proceedings.

At the time of writing, the teams are level at 2-9 apiece with five minutes remaining.
