The Saturday March 28 2010:
Allianz National Football League Division One: Tyrone 1-11 Kerry 1-10
Crackling with tension and a frantic sense of desperation, the knock-out punch to win Saturday night's bruiser was, well, incredible.
Colm Cavanagh's final act, clutching for a last-seconds straw, in the fourth minute of stoppage time, to dive and fist in the winning goal finished it off, writes Eamonn O'Hara.
Great escapes are, by design, dramatic events, a stunning spectacle.
Tyrone's this night left several thousand of their supporters in a cheering, screaming in hug and kiss state of delirium.
Healy Park was a very, very happy place to be about 9pm.
It wasn't, of course, for Jack O'Connor and his players.
They felt as if they'd been mugged, robbed; in a sense, they were.
However, spin it any which way, Tyrone never stopped trying and Kerry paid for just one score from the 48th minute, a stupid red card for Aidan O'Mahony and the tactic of playing down the clock from 15 minutes out.
They will have their grumbles. They will be sick, for sure.
But, they had a five-point lead, the match in their pocket before O'Mahony's sending off, the win in the bag and they blew it.
