Kerry and the Gaels played a supremely exciting game Sunday afternoon. Three first half goals from Kerry had the Gaels on the ropes for much of the game but the Connemara men got it together to come back late in the first half, and again in the second after falling behind early after the restart to have a chance to win with the final kick of the game. Unfortunately for the Gaels, and to the relief of Kerry, the kick hit the post and the sides had to settle for a draw.
