Mayo and the Blues served up an exciting game of senior football Sunday afternoon. In the second half there was never more than one point in it, with the Blues Simon Sinnott putting the winning point over the bar in injury time. It was always a game that either side could have won, but a sending off late in the game of Mayo’s Kevin Keane for a second yellow card might have given the edge to the Blues down the critical stretch at the end of the game.
