Mayo end Kildare's summer

Mayo are through to the fourth round of the qualifiers following a 2-17 to 0-14 victory over Kildare at MacHale Park.

In front of a crowd of 14,557, Mayo took charge from the first whistle, with three points from Diarmuid O’Connor and two frees from his brother Cillian giving the Yew County a 0-05 to 0-01 lead after 11 minutes.

Kildare rallied in the next ten minutes, but Mayo then scored two quick goals to sink the Lilywhites' hopes.

Evan Regan netted the opening goal on 29 minutes after Andy Moran’s initial effort had been blocked by Ciaran Fitzpatrick. then Diarmuid O’Connor netted a second following a bustling run and a drop-kicked finish past Mark Donnellan.

Mayo, who led 2-9 to 0-5 at half time, lost Colm Boyle to a black card in the second half but the Short Grass County were unable to net the goal that would give them a foothold in the game.

Stephen Rochford's men will now meet the beaten Ulster or Leinster finalists in a Round 4B Qualifier in two weeks' time, and victory over Tyrone, Donegal, Westmeath or Dublin will see them progress to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.
