Jordan Kiely was on the field just over 60 seconds when his shot hit the back of the Corofin net to put Dr. Croke seven points ahead in the All-Ireland club football semi-final.
The ball had landed into the hands of Kiely after a swift move from the Kerry side. Colm Cooper, roaming in the unfamiliar corner-back position, launched the attack when he found Daithi Casey with a pinpoint pass. The Crokes full forward started on a lung-busting solo run which concluded with Kiely's strike.
It came at a crucial stage in the game for Crokes. They were just four points ahead of the Connacht champions with 12 minutes remaining.
Kiely's goal ensured they would march to a nine-point win and set up an All-Ireland final against Slaughtneil on St. Patrick's Day.
