Daniel Cox was the hero for Galway’s U16 side on Sunday as his late goal sealed an opening day SFAI Subway Championship win.

Played at the home of Mervue United, the visitors took a short time to settle, but once they did they created several chances.

Galway also took some time to find their passing game, but, like Mayo, they did have chances on front of goal. However, some wayward shooting meant the tie remained scoreless at the interval.

The return leg in this tie will take place in January, and Mayo will have been hoping to at least head into that game with a point on the board.

Indeed, it looked as if they would hold on for the draw as the clock ticked down, but in the final seconds Cox arrived at the back post to turn in the ball and clinch the points.

The teams meet again on the weekend of January 6th/7th.
