Monaghan 0-12

Mayo 0-13

Paddy Durcan’s stoppage time point saw Mayo snatch victory over 13-man Monaghan in their Allianz Football League Division 1 clash.

Malachy O’Rourke’s men ended up with 12 players after Dermot Malone was black-carded at the death.

Monaghan pulled back that three-point deficit to level after 66 minutes thanks to two frees from Conor McCarthy and a great point from play from Niall Kearns.

Ryan Wylie was shown a straight red after 68 minutes after a clash with Mayo’s Aidan O’Shea, while Barry Kerr was shown a second yellow after pushing Jason Gibbons in injury time.

Durcan’s last minute point was difference in a tight game which was tied seven points each at half time with Mayo edging the second half before Conor McCarthy levelled the game with five minutes remaining.

Durcan cruelly struck a winner for Mayo with stoppage time nearly elapsed.
