Rip-Roaring Start As Mayo Score Stunner In Response To Early Armagh Goal

It started with a bang.

Mayo and Armagh's do or die clash in MacHale Park kicked off with a thundering opener as both sides exchanged well-worked goals in the opening minutes.

Armagh's young gun Rian O'Neill kicked off proceedings with a palmed goal and trademark celebration.

With Castlebar rocking and Mayo in need of a response, inside forward Andy Moran got on the ball and fired a beautiful pass across to Fionn McDonagh who smashed the ball through Blaine Hughes legs.

Speaking on Sky Sports, sideline reporter Senan Connell said that the Armagh management were unhappy with the decision to award a free to Mayo in the build-up to the goal. Nevertheless, it stood and the game was alive.
