It was level pegging a little after the half hour mark but scores from Stephen O’Brien and David Clifford put Kerry 2 to the good at the break at 10 points to 1-5.

Kerry went 3 ahead at 0-13 to 1-7 by the 46th minute mark but Galway fought back, scoring 3 points to draw level 8 minutes later. After David Clifford put the Kingdom in front once more a goal and a point from Shane Walsh gave Galway the advantage.
