Ultimately a gripping Connacht Under 21 Football Final was decided by Galway’s dynamism and depth.
Sligo contributed richly to a thrilling encounter, but Galway had sufficient stamina to pull clear in extra-time when the issue was delicately poised.
The underdogs snapped into the contest accumulating an eight point advantage in the first half with Galway in severe distress.
Alan McLoughlin’s 25th minute goal was quickly followed by a Kyle Cawley point which gave Sligo what seemed to be a commanding 1-7 to 0-2 cushion.
By the time the interval rolled around Galway had the margin cut to 1-7 to 0-5 as Peter Cooke, Colin Brady, and Robert Finnerty registered points.
Galway manager Gerry Fahy made some brave substitutions which proved critical as maroon replacements scored 2-5.
A blistering burst for 20 minutes after half-time saw Galway power four points ahead with Cein D’arcy influential when introduced at centrefield.
D’arcy rifled over a point within seconds of the restart, while Michael Daly added a goal, and Sean Kelly struck the leveller.
Despite playing into the teeth of the wind Sligo reeled off three points on the spin courtesy of Paddy O’Connor (2) and Alan McLoughlin.
The Galway riposte was stuffed with quality football, though, as the visitors nailed seven points in a row before Sligo came swinging
Kyle Cawley netted a 56th minute penalty to inject Sligo’s revival with hope and momentum.
Still Galway were in front deep into stoppage time when Liam Gaughan kicked an equaliser from a free, 1-16 to 2-13.
But the Tribesmen seized the initiative in impressive fashion with two goals from the pacy Sean Kelly and Sligo just couldn’t respond again. Paddy O'Connor was dismissed in the closing stages for Sligo as Galway confidently closed the deal.
