Mayo Gaels defeated Belmullet by 7:12 to 3:12 in round 6 of the Division 2 League in Abbey Park on Thursday the 8th of May.

Both teams were undefeated in their previous league games and there was a high level of interest among Mayo Gael supporters to see how the Gaels would fare against their Erris rivals.  Mayo Gaels stared hesitantly and Belmullet’s  long range passing and off-the ball running were causing problems for the home defence throughout the first-half. The Gaels struggled to create scoring chances and could consider themselves fortunate to be in arrears by only four points at the interval (Belmullet 1:09, Mayo Gaels 1:05).

Any doubts about the fighting quality of the Mayo Gaels team were banished in the third quarter when a storming display from a rejuvenated Gaels saw the lads take a 5:10 to 2:10 lead going into the final minutes. Gaels finished strongly and were well worth their twelve point victory at the finish.

The Gaels had strong performances from Cormac Henry, Sean Keane, Rurai Keane, Luke Gallagher and Owen Duggan.

The U14’s will next play Balla in round seven of the League (date/time to be confirmed).

Mayo Gaels: C. Henry, A. Commons, S. Keane, M. Durkan, L. Gallagher, R. Keane, J. Gallagher, S. Joyce, P. Prendergast, O. Duggan, P. Morris, J. Jennings, J. Fallon ; Subs : C. Brennan, E. Henry, D. Brennan, N. McGurrin, R. Henry.
