Much-changed Minors dig out draw

With next Friday’s all-or-nothing Connacht MFC semi-final against Roscommon facing Mayo, the opportunity was understandably taken in tonight’s Round 5 match against Sligo to ring the changes in terms of team selection. As a result we took the pitch with a much-changed team, showing fourteen changes from last weekend, but, despite this, the two teams served up an entertaining contest, […]

Both sides enjoyed periods of dominance in tonight’s game and coming down the home stretch a draw looked perhaps the likeliest outcome.
