New York's Jason Kelly aims for the square.

After an O’Connor free, another long-range effort from Raftery dropped in the square and Ross Wherity got a fist to it punching over, but expressions showed that he was thinking of something far more. 

It narrowed the gap to 11 but then the skill that can be Mayo showed, granted in spasms -- 2-2 in the next 14 minutes, with both goals coming from the penalty spot smothering a Jason Kelly long-range free. 

The first peno was the result of what appeared to be a foul on Varley. O’Connor drove low to the right of a wrong way diving Joyce. 

The second was the result of a foul on sub Brendan Harrison who raced in on the right side of goal but was fouled in the act of kicking. Hundreds will swear that it was outside the box including some at TnaG, but Mr. O’Sullivan in black said inside. 

Joyce guessed correct this time again to the right, but again O’Connor found net. O’Driscoll did have the last New York score with five minutes left, but Mayo responded by closing the game out with 1-2 , the fourth and final goal coming from super-sub Varley. 

It also meant they had covered the spread from a bookie standpoint, and New York had lost by more than 20 points for the third year in a row.
