Galway see off Mayo in feisty clash

Galway recorded their third consecutive Allianz Football League victory after beating arch rivals Mayo 1-13 to 0-11 at Pearse Stadium.

An ill-tempered affair saw three players receive red cards, with Cillian and Diarmuid O'Connor dismissed for Mayo while midfielder Paul Conroy was given his marching orders for the Tribesmen.

Although they failed to register a score in the final quarter hour of the first period, the Tribesmen went in at the break ahead of Stephen Rochford's side by 1-4 to 0-5.

The visitors had started slowly, only getting their first point of the contest on 13 minutes and they were always playing catch-up.

Cillian O'Connor's accuracy from frees kept the Westerners in touch in the second half but Galway were able to ease clear again and led by a six-point margin with 10 minutes left on the clock.

The final period of the match saw both sides discipline leave them as the game boiled over, incidents occurring all over the pitch.

The referee showed three red cards as the hosts held on in relative comfort to win by five points.

Next up for Mayo is a repeat of last year's All-Ireland final as they take on Dublin at MacHale Park on Saturday, 24 February, a match which is live on eir Sport 2 [throw in 7pm];
