Two Point Win In Clones – Mayo vs Monaghan

It was an eventful trip to Clones for Mayo supporters as our lads put on a great fight to see off Monaghan in their Divison 1 win.

We came into the game eager for a victory after a hard fought battle with Donegal last Sunday in Sligo and our lads came out on top by two points to gain the victory in Clones.

With the news during the week of the injury of Tommy Conroy, it was a test to see who would step up to the plate when needed.

It was a back and forth battle between the two sides in the first half as when one team would score a point the other would answer back with a score of their own.

Rob Hennelly’s great form continued as Mícheál Bannigan’s early goal opportunity was denied and a last minute goal saved to keep his side’s two point win.Ryan O’Donoghue and Jason Doherty got two much needed goals that Monaghan struggled to answer to.Monaghan will be angered by their missed opportunities and that they lost in their home turf but it was clear that Clones deserved to be decked out in the green and red by the final whistle.Mayo’s win came with a price with Eoghan McLaughlin picking up an injury and being carried off.

Going into the game we knew we were going to have a tough test against Monaghan and the panel made their county proud with a thriller match to gain points on the table.They will have a much needed rest as they await another battle with a deteriorating Dublin side in Croke Park on February 19th.The dubs will be hungry for revenge after last August but I’ve no doubt it will be another thriller chapter in one of GAA’s greatest rivalries.Well done to the lads on a great win !

Mayo Scorers : Ryan O’Donoghue 1-6 ; Jason Doherty 1-0; Fionn McDonagh 0-1; Diarmuid O’Connor 0-1; Conor O’Shea 0-1; Conor Loftus 0-1.
