Eight finals, 15 goals conceded – why Mayo must deliver a shutout to bring Sam Maguire home

As salvage acts go, there has arguably been none as swift as that produced by Mayo in the early minutes of last year’s All-Ireland football final. Within 13 seconds of the throw-in Dublin’s James McCarthy and Niall Scully had combined to put in Dean Rock to punch home the quickest ever goal in a final.

ut within two-and-a-half minutes, the value of that score, at least on the scoreboard, had been wiped out with a quick barrage of points.

Oisín Mullin had a hand in each of them, scoring the first and winning the two subsequent kick-outs above Con O’Callaghan to link with Ryan O’Donoghue and set up scores from a free and play for Cillian O’Connor to level.
