Watch: The Rampaging Sean Powter Goal That Gave Cork A Lifeline

Watch: The Rampaging Sean Powter Goal That Gave Cork A Lifeline
By David Kent

What is it about Mayo and the Gaelic Grounds?

Mayo had led by seven points at one stage in the second half and were still looking quite comfortable with a five point lead with ten minutes to go. Complete control, being led by Aidan O'Shea and Conor Loftus. Despite losing Lee Keegan to a black card, Mayo were on their way to the quarter finals.

Enter Sean Powter. The 19-year-old half back burst forward through the Mayo defence, shrugged off two tackles before blasting the ball low past David Clarke.

Powter has played as a half forward in the past for both St Francis College and for his club Douglas. Which explains the composure in finishing past Clarke from a considerable distance.

A two point lead was subsequently cut off when Ruari Deane found the net for Cork again. From the unlikeliest of positions, Cork had snatched a draw from the jaws of defeat.

Powter was subbed off with cramp just before half time in extra time, and Cork would go on to lose by a single point.
