In other action this weekend, Crossmolina got their first points on the board in the Mayo Women's Football League with a well-deserved draw at home to Kiltimagh Knock United on Friday evening.

Danielle Kelly, Sarah Kelly and Cathriona Flynn all hit the net for Crossmolina in the first half as they led 3-2 at the break.

The county town side were on tour to the Erris peninsula on a lovely summer's evening where they put nine past Kilmore. Louise Dowling had a first-half hat-trick after Mary Tyrell opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Tyrell went on to also net herself a hat-trick, with Roisin Kelly, Chloe Morley and substitute Sophie Keavney also getting on the scoresheet on what turned out to be a tough evening for the north Mayo side.
Swinford enjoyed a 3-0 win at home over Straide & Foxford. They led 2-0 at half-time through Beth Roache and Melissa Devaney, and Kaitlyn Jordan rounded off the scoring in the 64th minute.
Conn Rangers returned home with full points on their visit to Killala in a seven-goal thriller.
They led 3-0 at the break through Leah McHugh and Ciara Armstrong (2), with McHugh tapping in an early second-half goal to make it 4-0.
Laura Bilbow pulled one back for Killala on 53 minutes before substitute Alva Munnelly was introduced 10 minutes later and she made life a little uncomfortable for Conn with two goals, the first on 73 minutes and a second eight minutes from full-time.
