It certainly wasn't the prettiest of football but there was plenty of thrills and spills in Ashbourne on tonight as Wolfe Tones stunned Ratoath 0-15 to 0-14 to claim a place in the SFC semi-finals following a nerve-jangling extra-time victory.
Cian Ward was the hero for Wolfe Tones as he converted a 30-metre free a minute into injury-time at the end of extra-time to seal the win.
The teams were tied on 11 occasions over the 80 minutes before Ward struck what proved to be the winning free.
The teams were level 0-4 each at the break and also 0-11 each at the end of the hour. At the break in extra-time they still couldn't be separated, 0-13 each, but it was Ward who fired the decisive score.
