Tomas O’Connor goals for Kildare

Paddy Brophy kicked a late winner to give Kildare a 2-19 to 2-18 win over Mayo in a terrific Allianz Football League Division 1 contest at Newbridge.

Three points each from Kevin McLoughlin and goalkeeper Rob Hennelly helped Mayo to a three-point lead, but a Tomas O’Connor goal saw the Lilywhites to a 1-11 to 0-10 half-time lead.

Jason Gibbons and Darren Coen netted for Mayo after the break, but Eoghan O’Flaherty goaled at the other end and the sides were level six times before Brophy’s sixth score sealed it.
