The State Of The Pitch In The Mayo-Roscommon Game Is Provoking Derision

The State Of The Pitch In The Mayo-Roscommon Game Is Provoking Derision
By Conor Neville Updated

Early in the second half in Roscommon's on-again, off-again home in Hyde Park, the unthinkable looks like a distinct possibility.

Roscommon are losing.

Relegation zone scrappers Mayo lead 1-8 to 04. Roscommon, who scored 4-25 against Cork in Pairc Ui Rinn mustered 0-3 at home to Mayo in a half of football. The unsexy looking scoreline is largely attributable to the state of the Hyde Park pitch, which was pockmarked with puddles before throw-in.

The surface survived a pre-match pitch inspection and went ahead.

It is Roscommon's first League game at Hyde Park this year. Previous 'home' games have been played in Longford and Kiltoom (a proper home game in fairness).

Unsurprisingly, Mayo supporters are very satisfied with the way the game has progressed, with some chiding the Rossies for believing their own hype and another confidently predicting that the championship match-up would likely go the same way.

UPDATE: A late Roscommon rally narrowed the margin to four points at the end. Mayo win 1-11 to 1-7.
