Sligo a point up now! That would put Mayo into semi at Ros expense

Sligo 2-14 Ros 3-7 with 2 mins left, some turnaround, win and we play Mayo away in semi with potentially Galway at home in final.

Would have got long odds on Roscommon not qualifying after beating Galway in the first game. Coming from 8 points down.

Sligo 2-15 Roscommon 4-7- great result, Roscommon got 3 1st half goals and were 3-3 to 6 pts up at one stage, Sligo took over then and ros got a late goal to bring it to 2pts.

Mayo v Sligo in semi with Galway waiting in final.

Narrowly losing to Galway, beating Mayo, Leitrim and Roscommon is great stuff for us. Looking forward to the knockouts.

Sligo deserved win on the night. They took no hammerings in group stage either. Would be nice to see them win Connacht. Think this year's format is good,  although the B final is pointless.

So the final three of the U17 Connacht championship goes to the form of U16 last year. Sligo after coming through a tough battle tonight are at a disadvantage i feel. The semi final v a rested Mayo is in 5 days time.

Galway have recovered well from their opening round defeat and will be hard bet in the July 5th final.

Is there confusion over the venue Mayo v Sligo semi final, meeting of the provincial CCC to confirm tomorrow? Why bother meeting if straightforward?

Hope Iím wrong, but have a feeling Sligo will regret giving Mayo a second chance!

Its a pointless way of looking at it Hound, What do you expect us to lose or draw on purpose. We have momentum, we have beaten them before, despite what blowitupref says I think we will be sharper given there lay off. Galway beat them there, so why cant we.

We are delighted to be in the semi final, this was the only way we could get a home final if fixtures stay the way we think.

Sligo were told 2nd place gets home advantage in the semi final. Final is Neutral venue.

A change from last year and only fair that home advantage is given to the team that finishes 2nd in the group.

Ya - actually checked the fixtures after it was put up here (wrongly) that it was the reverse of the league. Competition fixtures clearly state first named team has home advantage and semi is 2 v 3.

Great result after a ropey first half. Looking forward to Wednesday.
