Mayo Senior League 2016 - Group 1A
Sat, 13 Aug, Venue: Crossmolina , (Round 7),

Crossmolina Deel Rovers 0-11
Garrymore 1-7

Crossmolina carved out a hard earned one point win over a resolute Garrymore side at Tiernans Park in the this County Division 1 tie on Saturday evening. The hosts were rocked by an early goal from Gary Golden in the first minute and a James Kin point before Kevin Mulhern kicked a long rage point in the 8th minute. Sean Kelly added another,  minutes later Jimmy Killen pointed a free. Crossmolina were having much the better poscession but some wayward shooting cost them scores, they did hit a purple patch in the last quarter with as string of points from Sean Kelly, two, and one each from Jonathan O’Boyle and Jordan Flynn, sandwiched  in between those scores was a Anthony Cunningham point to leave the half times scores tied 1 – 3 to 0 – 6. 
Peadar Gardiner and Sean Kelly kicked points each in the opening three minutes after the break Anthony Cunningham pulled one back, Sean Kelly and Cunningham exchanged points in the 45th minute. Sean Kelly and Declan Keating extended the Deel-Siders lead to three points but in a nail biting finish Darren Quinn and Michael Connolly grabbed points for Garrymore and Crossmolina defences were very disciplined in those six minutes of added time and defended as if their lives depended on it and made some heroic blocks and clearances to insure two precious League points.
