Hurlers crash out

Galway sub Davey Glennon takes on Paddy Smyth of Dublin.

WHEN Chris Crummey came marauding forward on the 68th minute and unleashed a brilliant finish past Colm Callanan to put Dublin three points clear, panic stations went off around a packed Parnell Park.

 Galway supporters turned to their phones - to make calls, to find streams and/or to scan social media in the hope that someone was leading in the Wexford-Kilkenny game. A draw at Innovate Wexford Park and a defeat for Micheál Donoghue’s men was the only permutation that would see the 2017 All-Ireland champions exit the championship.

The game in the sunny South East was tight, but TJ Reid, the Tribesmen’s tormentor six days previous in Nowlan Park, had edged Kilkenny back in front by a point and was looking a likely saviour to pained Galway supporters in their time of need.

Things got worse a minute later in the capital though as Dublin’s Fergal Whitley landed another point to stretch their advantage to four and ensured that Galway’s fate was now firmly out of their hands.
