Story of the Game
Turning Point: You could say there was two really, the second the final whistle blew to ensure they must meet again tonight. The first would have to be Darragh Rodgers goal, in the 34th minute that saw the start of Dillon’s comeback to for this draw. Score of the Match: There were plenty to choose from, with Colin Lynch getting a superb point from out near the sideline to put Dillon’s in front late on. But Rodgers catch, from a Horgan sideline, for his goal, was brilliant and the pick of the day.
Man of the Match: Can be difficult to pick in a draw, with Daniel Mangan having a great first-half for his side. But, for his overall perform-
ance and a number of vital first-half scores when his side was struggling, Jack Horgan is the pick.
Entertainment value: For the neutral they can’t have any complaints about what they saw. Both sides gave it everything and with the way it ended, there is sure to be a large crowd at the replay. 8/ 10
