The are three Mayo matches to report on today, which produced two wins and a loss.
Let’s start with the wins. The first was the county’s camogie team who enjoyed a winning start to their League campaign. They got the better of Louth by 1-14 to 2-4 in a game played at Cooley Kickhams GAA club. Nest up for them is a meeting with Wicklow this day week.
The Mayo LGFA U16s (above) also had a big win today. In fact, they gave a right old shellacking to Kerry in a challenge match played at UL this afternoon. The final score in that one was 6-10 to 1-16.
The defeat occurred in the U20 Leo Murphy Cup, where Mayo were well beaten by Donegal at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey. Despite a bright opening, aided by a goal from midfielder Conor Reid, which saw Maurice Sheridan’s charges lead by three midway through the first half, the home side forged ahead to lead by four at the break. Donegal won at the finish by nine points, on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-4.
