Mayo cruise to victory

Mayo claimed their first Connacht JFC title since 2007 when they beat Galway 2-12 to 0-10 at Hyde Park yesterday.

The Tribesmen took an early lead as Mayo proved wasteful in front of goals, kicking 16 wides.

Galway held the lead until the second-half when Davitts Aidan McTigue squared the contest with a point, fired in a goal seconds later and his clubmate Ronan McNamara banged over a free to send Mayo four clear with 10 minutes left. From there, Mayo cruised to victory with Simon Cloherty, Alan Egan, Michael Walsh and McNamara points and a Colin Dempsey goal.
