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

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

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.
