Two goals from the Mayo side in the closing minutes gave them a lifeline and forced the game to extra-time.


A point a piece in the first period of ten minutes called for a pulsating finish to the game.

The sides scored just two more points each, as the fixture finished all square at 0-19 to 2-13.

The replay has been fixed for Athleague next Saturday, 12 November.

A thriller in the Connacht Inter hurling final today! @AhasFohGAA and @BallyhaunisGAA will have to do it all again next Sat. #TheToughest
