Watch: Mayo Vs Leitrim FBD League Game Decided By Penalty Shootout

Mayo and Leitrim's FBD League preliminary round game at Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada in Carrick-On-Shannon on Sunday was decided by a penalty shootout.

The game, which was the first of James Horan's second spell in charge of the county, finished 2-13 each after 70 minutes with Leitrim grabbing a late equalising point.

It then went straight to a penalty shootout which Mayo won 4-1. Prior to the shootout beginning, an announcement was made that only goals - and not points - would count.

Mayo manager James Horan told RTÉ after the game that he and his players knew on Saturday that there was a possibility the game would be decided by a shootout.

The first three penalties were scored by Mayo duo Jason Doherty and Brian Reape with Ryan O'Rourke replying for Leitrim.

Mayo will play Galway in the FBD League semi-final next week.
