Colm Gannan in Croke Park
On Saturday night, “MEYO” beat “DUBLIN” in the league for the first time since 2012 in Crook Park, when they won by five points.
They worked hard in the first half and were able to keep Desi Farrell’s side at arm’s length in the last 35 minutes, where Dublin scored just three points and had over half a dozen assists.
Mayo took the lead with a three-point lead at the break, hitting Evan Comerford twice in the first half.
Jack Carney was the first to do so in the 20th minute when his shot bounced off the post and then into Commerford’s back before crossing the line, and put Mayo 1-4 to 0-5.
Their second goal was scored 11 minutes later when Aiden Orme reached high to make a pass from Ryan O’Donoghue home, and brought Mayo to three just after Ross McGary tied the game with a great score from under Hogan’s podium.
Both sides went for it in the first half and attacked from the start, scoring a number of great points, and Kiaran Kilkenny and Dean Rock finished the first half with three points each and McGarry – two. Matthew Ruin scored two shots for Mayo in his first league of the season, and Oisin Mullin also got a point in his first start to send Mayo a lead of 2-6 to 0-9 at the break.

Rob Henley put up more than 45 at the very end of the second half and he got the first score in the second with a far-set ball to increase Mayo’s lead to four in the 42nd minute.
Three minutes later, he made a great save from Lorcan Dello’s attempt to throw the ball over the crossbar, rather than hitting the net to keep Mayo’s lead at a convenient distance. Mayo responded with points from Michael Plunkett and Brian Walsh to further increase his advantage when Dublin sometimes looked at sixes and sevens.
The last ten minutes of the game were devoted to Mayo, which they did with ease as Plunkett and Diarmuid O’Connor scored points to complete their scores with the help of Rock Free and the efforts of John Small, who could collect Dublin. in response when Mayo did not have five points winners.
