Three reasons why Mayo can beat Kerry on Sunday

 

Mayo hold off the rebels at the gate

The first half of Sunday's All Ireland quarter final between Mayo and Cork, will have long faded into the memory bank by the time the Mayo's meeting with Kerry comes around, but the second half is one that the fat will be chewed over a lot in the next 21 days. The first half was a bitty and often ill tempered affair where Mayo struggled to break down, Cork's blanket defence and the sides went in level at eight points each. Mayo ran down closed off avenues and their foot passing into their full forward line was wasn't sticking as Cork smothered the Mayo attack like jam on a warm slice of bread.

Boyle and O’Connor are ready for the next step

Mayo's teak tough centre-back Colm Boyle laid down an early marker in Sunday's contest with a almighty hit on Galway's Damien Comer in the first half. The Davitts’ man was happy to get the win and told the Mayo Advertiser after the game there was still lots for his side to improve on ahead of the All Ireland quarter-final “It was a strange game, we started fairly well, got into the game, and Lee's goal settled us a small bit. But we maybe dropped the tempo and Galway missed a few opportunities at the start of the second half. We were a bit dead and they came out well in the second half.”

Make mine a double

Mayo achieved the double/double in Elverys MacHale Park last Sunday with our minors and seniors winning the Connacht championship for the second year in a row. I could only imagine it was a bit surreal for Diarmuid O’Connor who only 12 months ago was on that minor team, and now finds himself togging with the seniors and winning his first senior medal while some of his old team mates collected their second in the minor grade.

Four in a row for Horan's Mayo

Galway came to town and they huffed and and puffed but in the end they were no match for a Mayo team that went about dismantling their southern neighbors with relative ease in the end with man of the match Cillian O'Connor kicking eight points and having his hand in two of Mayo's goals that booked their passage to the All Ireland quarter-final on the August Bank Holiday weekend. Mayo were smarter in almost every area of the field and ran out deserving seven point winners with Aidan O'Shea dominating the game from his centre half forward berth for long periods of the contest. Even when Galway looked like they could get themselves back into the contest the rub of the green wasn't with them as Shane Walsh who kicked seven points for the Tribesmen saw his effort for a goal come crashing back off the bar just after the restart.
