FBD League: Ronaldson on song for Mayo
23 January 2011
Mayo produced a five-star second-half performance this afternoon at Ballyhaunis to eclipse Connacht champions Roscommon and move closer to a place in the FBD League final.
Mark Ronaldson was the star of the show for the hosts, who trailed by 0-7 to 0-6 at half-time in this encounter after the early scores of Jonathan Dunning, Kevin Higgins and Donal Shine for the Rossies.
Three minutes into the restart though Ronaldson struck for the game's only goal when he demonstrated his soccer skills to round the Roscommon 'keeper and tap to the empty net.
The score gave James Horan's men the lead and their stern defence would only concede one more point - from Fintan Cregg - afterwards, as the would-be winners dominated until the long whistle, with Ronaldson, Enda Varley and Aidan Kilcoyne all putting up scores to secure a possible final meeting with John Maughan's NUIG.
