NHL 3B: Rossies seal title after local joust
April 17, 2011
Freetaker Gary Fallon and centre back Michael Kelly proved the difference as Roscommon edged Mayo in the Allianz National Hurling League Division 3A final at Carrick-on-Shannon on Sunday.
Fallon struck eight points on the day while Kelly was a heroic figure in defence as the Rossies came from behind to take the title.
Mayo led by two (1-8 to 0-9) at the interval following Ronan Cullinane's 27th minute goal.
But Roscommon outgunned their neighbours by double scores in the second half (0-8 to 0-4) to run out deserved winners at the final whistle.
