Corofin’s Galway SFC six-in-a-row bid survived a major scare against Mountbellew-Moylough yesterday thanks to captain Micheal Lundy’s last gasp equalising point.
"It was a super finish to get the score,” Corofin manager Kevin O’Brien remarked to the Irish Independent shortly after the final whistle was sounded in the Pearse Stadium stalemate. “The game was probably gone at that time.”
He added: “The hunger of this team, they have been on the go for a long time. Big questions asked today, there will be again the next day.”
O’Brien’s Mountbellew-Moylough counterpart Michael Donnellan, a native of Corofin, echoed those sentiments: “It was a frantic finish, but Corofin are incredible champions.
“They showed it there at the end where they came back and got that equalising point. When things maybe weren't going that well for them they showed their class.”
