The Tribesmen had a good win over Dublin in Round 3 of the National Hurling League in Pearse Stadium on Sunday. 0-20 to 1-11 was the final score in a game which Galway controlled comfortably throughout. Padraig Mannion was on song in a new midfield position for him , landing 4 fine points from play. They will now look for a third win in a row when they head to O’Connor Park to face bottom of the table Offaly next Sunday.

 

 

Sligo had an impressive 4-19 2-6 win over Cavan in Markeivicz park on Sunday, with Keith Raymond notching a hat trick for the Yeats County. They now sit on the top of 3B with a maximum 3 wins out of 3, and have a week off next week as they have a bye.

Leitrim hurlers fell to a disappointing 2-18 to 0-16 loss to Longford on Sunday. They trailed by 0-7 to 0-6 at half time but were against the wind in the second half and were outplayed by Longford. In their next game they will host Fermanagh in Round 4 in AvantCard Páirc Seán MacDiarmada this Sunday.

 

Kerry always looked in control, as they delivered an 18-point home win over Mayo by 3-18 to 0-9 at Austin Stack Park. In a disappointing showing by Derek Walsh’s team they never got going and the game was effectively over at half time as they trailed by 15 at the interval. Mayo will look to pick themselves up next weekend when they host Antrim in Ballina on Sunday.

 

Roscommon had an impressive 0-18 to 1-11 win away to Armagh in Round 3, with Cathal Dolan landing 6 important points for them. This result means they have 3 wins from 3 and sit top of the 3A Table, with a home game against Tyrone next up for them.
