Kildare defeat Dublin in Leinster Minor Football Final

Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship Final

KILDARE 2-21 DUBLIN 1-19 (AFTER EXTRA-TIME)

By Paul Keane at Pairc Tailteann, Navan

Kildare are Electric Ireland Leinster minor football champions for the ninth time after edging an epic extra-time encounter in Navan with a character laden display.

Inspired by Aaron Browne and free-taker Eoin Bagnall, who struck 1-7 each, Kildare came good with extra-time goals from the duo to secure victory in a marathon game that ran to almost 100 minutes in total.

Kildare thought they’d done enough to secure their fourth provincial title since 2013 in normal time when they led by a point but Fionn Murray’s 64th minute equaliser for Dublin forced extra-time.

A powerful young Kildare side got better as the game went on and ultimately overwhelmed Dublin in the extra 20 minutes with 61st and 73rd minute goals from Bagnall and Brown getting the job done.
