Mayo youngster James Carr just may be the forward for Mayo to go the extra step in their elusive search for an All Ireland title.

Carr had already given the Allianz League champions a 1-2 to 0-0 lead when he pounced from close range after Galway keeper Bernard Power fumbled the ball into his path.

And less than three minutes later, the Ardagh man produced one of the moments of the summer when he picked up a neat pass from Paddy Durcan 50 yards from goal.

With seemingly not much on, Carr twisted and turned to speed past Liam Silke before leaving another two Galway defenders in his wake and hammering into the top corner to give Mayo a 2-2 to 0-2 lead after eight minutes.
