The Kingdom Reign Supreme – Mayo vs Kerry

It was a match day in Croke Park dominated by the kingdom as Kerry overcame Mayo to become Division One Champions.

It was yet again one of those games where you just wouldn’t know how it would turn out.

The kingdom made sure to keep their winning streak alive dominating Mayo from beginning to end.

Mayo’s Michael Plunkett opened the scoreline between the two teams thirty seconds in.

David Clifford didn’t take long to answer, opening Kerry’s scoreline in the second minute.

Matthew Ruane answered back but at that moment Kerry had hit the switch and the dominance began. Prior to our previous league meeting, Kerry was the only real test Mayo had until that point and like many fellow Mayo fans will agree we didn’t recognise the team that was put out.

Kerry proved why they are the team to be at in this year’s championship-leading Mayo at halftime 1-10 to 0-07.

Throughout the second half, it was Kerry who took control, with points from Adrian Spillane, Paul Geaney, and David Clifford.

Although it wasn’t Mayo’s day many will agree it was great to see Cillian O’Connor and Darren McHale back out for Mayo after injury.

Wishing Jordan Flynn a speedy recovery.

It was a potential preview of this year’s All Ireland Final and we put Sunday behind us and focus on April 24th against Galway.

Congratulations to Kerry who were the worthy winners on the day.

Let the Championship begin.
