Corcoran strikes late to close gate on Parke

St Peter's (Manchester) 2-9
Parke (Mayo) 0-14
All-Ireland Club JFC Q-F

A LUCKY deflected goal in the final minute of extra-time handed St Peter's a famous win in this last-eight clash.

The game was halted for 40 minutes after Peter's Shane Gallagher dislocated his knee in first half.

Ryan Hannah and Eoin Meaney kicked 0-5 after the interval but late Parke scores from Pat Lynch and Niall Dunne forced extra-time. Parke then led until Castlebar man Joe Corcoran's shot went in off sub Michael Walsh.
