Mayo are through to the 2B final as they maintained their unbeaten run against Wicklow in Ballina.

Four wins from four leaves Mayo top of the league before they travel to Down in the final round next week.

Mayo had to recover from two sloppy first half goals, when Mayo goalkeeper Donal O'Brien first allowed Christy Moorehouse's long-range effort drop into the net and he then coughed up a routine ball for Enda Donohue to roll home the second. Brian Morley pulled a goal back before the break to stay on Wicklow's coattails.

After Wicklow's Anto Boyle was sent off for a swing of the hurl, Mayo eventually reeled them in in the closing 10 minutes with scores from Kenny Feeney and dual star Keith Higgins.
