Watch: The Thrilling Finish To Wicklow And Kildare's Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Semi
By PJ Browne Updated

Wicklow and Kildare played out a thrilling draw in their Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship semi-final in Newbridge on Sunday.

After the game finished level in normal time - 2-9 to 1-12 - the game went to extra-time. Even an extra 20 minutes could not separate the two sides.

It had looked like Kildare were heading for victory when Aaron Kennedy forced the green flag to be raised, extending his side's lead to four points with four minutes left on the clock.

Wicklow were not dead and buried. Eoghan D'Arcy stuck back with a goal, reducing the deficit to the minimum with a minute to play.

Dramatically, Wicklow were then awarded a last-gasp free. John Keogh converted - levelling the game at 3-13 each - and taking the tie to a replay in Aughrim on Friday.
