Galway and Roscommon must meet again


Galway and Roscommon will have to do it all over again after they drew their Connacht SFC final 0-13 to 1-10 in dreadful conditions at Pearse Stadium.

The Tribesmen looked like they had done enough to edge a tight contest which was difficult to watch at times and in which Roscommon provided little of the good play on show.

However, a Donie Smith free in the third minute of added time drew the Rossies level and the teams, just like they did in the 1998 final, will face each other in a replay.

With the help of the strong wind, Roscommon led by 1-6 to 0-6 at the break with Enda Smith's goal the difference.

But Galway would have been happy with that margin to claw back with the assistance of the wind and they led by two points as the final whistle approached.

It was a victory which Galway would have merited but Cathal Cregg pulled one back for Roscommon before Smith's vital contribution means they will meet again in a provincial decider.

Meanwhile at Cusack Park, Clare produced a thrilling comeback to beat Laois in their All-Ireland qualifer by 0-14 to 1-10.

The Bannermen had only won four qualifier games since the backdoor system was introduced and the size of their task was clarified by the fact they had lost all three meetings with Laois.

This tie looked like going according to history as Laois opened up a comfortable gap but in the final quarter of the match, Clare held their opponents scoreless while they gradually reeled off the points to seal a famous one-point victory.
