All good things come to an end and Mayo’s reign as All Ireland minor champions was finished off by an impressive Kerry team in Croke Park on the under-card of the big game between the two counties’ senior sides.
I am not sure what the odds were back in 1951 or if odds on football matches even existed back then but I would be pretty sure when Mayo faced Kerry in '81, '96’, '97, '04, '06, and 2011, Kerry would have been the overwhelming favourites.
Unfortunately for some folk, the minor grade will always be an after thought, something they will catch the last 20 minutes of before the big senior game.
The four Egan Jewellers Intermediate Football Championships quarter-finals that were down for decision over this weekend were postponed on Wednesday evening by the county board following discussions with Mayo senior team manager James Horan.
The Mayo minors booked their place in the final four of this years Electric Ireland Minor Football Championship with a impressive victory over beaten Ulster finalists Armagh in Croke Park on Sunday. Enda Gilvarry's side got over a nervy opening 15 minutes to win the game in some style with Bohola Moy Davitts corner forward Brian Reape bagging himself two second half goals to seal the win with 20 minutes to go in GAA headquarters.
It’s going to be a long day for Mayo supporters in Croke Park on Sunday, with the action getting under way at 12 noon when Enda Gilvarry’s Mayo minors take on the defeated Ulster finalists Armagh in GAA headquarters.
Mayo found the extra gear that they needed when the tide looked to have turned against them in the Connacht Minor Football Championship final in MacHale Park on Sunday. With 13 minutes left on the clock, Roscommon had put themselves into a one point lead and looked like they were about to turn for home. But this Mayo side who showed they have plenty of bottle when needed against Galway in their semi-final win, upped the ante again and sprinted past Roscommon over the closing stages.
A brace of wins in three day’s from last Thursday to Sunday along with table toppers Ballina Town suffering their first loss in the league this season, saw Westport United move to within two points of the table toppers last weekend. Westport United kicked off their weekend double header with a 4-1 win over Iorras Aontaithe at home, thanks to first half goals from Philip Keegan and Dave Hoban along with late, late strikes from JP O’Gorman and Vinny O’Malley in the final five minutes. Strangely, it was the same opponents who did Westport United a big favour last Sunday afternoon when they turned over the leaders, by the odd goal in five in Carnenash and leave only a brace of points between Ballina Town and Westport United going into this weekend’s round of games.
