Galway recover from Connacht final deficit on the way to All-Ireland triumph

Sammon leaps to the rescue

Early in the second half Mayo raced into a five-point lead when MJ Ruddy goaled for the underdogs. Joe Langan was in superb for Mayo but Galway hung in and eventually started eating into the lead. Mayo were terribly profligate in front of goal and paid for it when Liam Sammon scored a winning injury-time point for the Tribesmen.
