Late show sees Dubs to victory

Published 01/09/2013 | 19:06

Dublin crushed Kerry's challenge with a late avalanche of scores to settle an epic All-Ireland SFC semi-final with a 3-18 to 3-11 win in front of an enthralled full house at Croke Park.

A marvellous exhibition of attacking football enthralled a crowd of more than 82,000, and fans of the Metropolitans and western opponents Mayo can look forward to more of the same in next month's Sam Maguire Cup decider.

The Dubs may have run out seven points winners, but the sides were level heading into the final minute of a memorable encounter, before substitutes Kevin McManamon and Dean Rock settled it in ruthless fashion with late goals.

The Kingdom had stunned their opponents with three first half strikes, two of them from James O'Donoghue, and had Dublin's defence in all sorts of trouble.

Kerry led by 3-5 to 1-9 at half-time, with Paul Mannion grabbing the Dublin goal.

But the strength of Jim Gavin's bench was to prove decisive in the end, with all of his substitutes making telling impacts as they came strong in the closing stages, hitting 2-2 without reply.
