Mayo Gaels defeated Kilmovee by 6:12 to 3:12 in the first U16 Division 3B play-off game played in a sunny Charlestown on Tuesday the 29th of April.

Despite strong early pressure from Kilmovee it was Mayo Gaels who opened the scoring with a long range point scored by Kevin Kenna.  Mid-way through the first half poor Mayo Gaels defending allowed Kilmovee through for two goals and four points. Kilmovee were comfortably in the lead (3:08 to 0:04) towards the end of the second quarter however just before half-time Gaels scored a goal and two points to reduce the half-time score difference to a more manageable eight points (Kilmovee 3:08 Mayo Gaels 1:06).

Making several positional changes Mayo Gaels started the second half in determined fashion and by the end of the third quarter had taken the lead thanks to goals from James Jennings and Francis Regan.

Gaels finished strongly and added several excellently worked scores in the final minutes to run out comprehensive winners on a scoreline of 6:12 to 3:12. The Gaels will be happy with their second half performances in a half where Cathal Heneghan, Liam Hughes and James Jennings gave outstanding displays.

Mayo Gaels play Moy Davitts in the second divisional play-off on Saturday the 3rd of May, in Charlestown.
