The Mayo ladies this afternoon kept up their push for a League semi-final place when they beat Donegal by 5-14 to 4-12 in a Round 7 meeting at Swinford.
The teams were tied at 3-7 apiece after a ding-dong opening half, and a fourth goal by the visitors early in the second half saw them lead briefly. Once Niamh Kelly had banged in Mayo’s fourth goal, however, they were back in the ascendancy. They won by five at the finish. Match report is here.
It’s back to Swinford for Peter Leahy’s charges next weekend where a win over Monaghan will seal their place in the semi-finals. Best of luck to them then.
