Dublin 0-10 Mayo 1-06

Dublin are leading Mayo by a point at half-time in their All-Ireland final replay after a frantic first 35 minutes of action at Croke Park.

The Dubs started the match much the brighter, with Dean Rock converting an early free before adding one from play in a great first-half by the Ballymun man.

McManamon kicked a good point from play before Rock made it four points to no score for the Dubs.

That seemed to spring Mayo into life, with half back Patrick Durcan getting their first score of the game before two points from Cillian O'Connor and an Andy Moran point made it a draw game.

Once more Dublin moved ahead through two points from Rock, who kicked eight in the opening half, before Aidan O'Shea played Lee Keegan through the Dublin defence.

The Westport man held his nerve to finish coolly beyond Cluxton and into the bottom corner of the Dublin net.

Shortly afterwards things went from bad to worse for Dublin as full back Jonny Cooper was black carded for a hand trip on Donal Vaughan.

Cooper was replaced by Davy Byrne, one of three Dublin players named to start but dropped before throw in.

In truth Cooper could have been the second Dublin player black carded after John Small was lucky to avoid a similar sentence for a trip on Moran.

Mayo's lead did not last long however as Dublin finished the half strongly, with Rock racking up the points while Diarmuid Connolly added a great score from play.

Mayo then had a black card of their own as Keegan was dismissed for dragging down Connolly. Rock converted the resulting free to make it 0-10 to 1-05.

O'Connor then gave Mayo a boost before the break by making it a one-point game deep in added time.

The action did not end there however, as a number of flashpoints broke out in the middle of the field, resulting in yellow cards for Mayo's Vaughan as well as Connolly and John Small.
