GAA All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final – Replay
Dublin vs Kerry
Throw in: 6.00pm
Dublin 1-16 Kerry 1-16 – (September 1st)
Another of the modern great Dublin vs Kerry championship games in terms of tension, drama and excitement. The game had everything – goals, sending off, a clearance off the line, a penalty save, shot off crossbar, Hawkeye cancelling out a point which had been signalled as a score by an umpire, a late equaliser by the Dubs, an even later chance for Dublin to win it (despite being down a man for over half the match) and then almost nine minutes of added time it was over. The counties will meet again in Croke Park on Saturday, September 14th.
“That performance wasn't good enough to get the result today,” said Dublin manager Jim Gavin. “We have the opportunity now to try to rectify that the next day.” The tension was unreal down the closing stretch with Kerry reeling in Dublin, thanks to sub Killiane Spillane's 56th minute goal, and then edging in front with the finishing line in sight. But Dublin did not buckle, despite losing Jonny Cooper towards the close of the first half to a second yellow card, and Jim Gavin's side had the better of the late scoring opportunities with Dean Rock hitting the equaliser before missing a very difficult free, from practically on the Cusack Stand sideline, which would have seen his side to victory.
