Corofin Vs Castlebar On Sunday Was Connacht Football At Its Best

Corofin Vs Castlebar On Sunday Was Connacht Football At Its Best
By David Kent Updated

Those that are missing the GAA after Dublin's All-Ireland victory were served up a cracker on TG4 on Sunday.  Castlebar Mitchels and Corofin locked horns in a heavyweight tussle. The winners would go on to face St.Brigid's in the Connacht final.

Corofin were in the ascendancy early on, leading by 0-05 to 0-01 after twenty minutes. A mini-fightback from the Mitchels brought the gap into two points at half-time (0-06 to 0-04).

Gary Sice opened the scoring for Corofin in the second half but they went twenty minutes without a score after that as the home side took control. Neil Douglas' frees were punishing Corofin but they drew level heading into injury time.

Ronan Steede appeared to have won it for them late on. Shooting from distance with the clock in the red, the midfielder saw his effort just creep over.

David Stenson had other ideas. After coming off the bench with just six minutes left, he scored an equally impressive leveller for Mitchels to force extra time.


Points from Sice and Michael Farragher were key in the second half of extra time  as Galway champions Corofin pulled away to win by 0-17 to 0-14. Farragher was pumped afterwards.

Twitter was glued to the match, with some eagle eyed tweeters noticing a few 'extras'
