There was a lot at stake for Christopher’s and Mayo in the first senior football game of the day. The winners would have a good chance to be in, and the losers more or less out of the senior championship playoff picture. As it turned out Christopher’s put the game away with a decisive first half performance. Mayo came storming back in the second and went a long way to restoring some pride, but it was a case of too little too late as they had given themselves too much to do.
