Rossies suffer FBD Final defeat

FBD League Final

Mayo 0-13 Roscommon 0-9

Roscommon footballers lost by four points to Mayo in what was a tense and scrappy FBD League Final at the NUIG Air Dome this evening.

In a match where packed defences ruled the roost, Mayo were sharper up front and led by 0-5 to 0-2 at half-time.

Roscommon were much better in the second half and Donie Smith was excellent after coming on as a sub at the break.

But Roscommon could never bridge the gap and two late points for Mayo sub Cillian O’Connor sealed the win for Kevin McStay’s men.

Roscommon will now focus on the start of the National Football League next weekend and the visit of Tyrone to Dr Hyde Park.
