Cork were crowned the Electric Ireland Minor Football All-Ireland champions for the first time in 19 years after a strong challenge from Galway.
It ended Cork 3-20 - 3-14 Galway in a game that needed extra-time to separate the sides.
The first-half started slowly enough with Galway’s Tomo Culhane opening the scoring after 7 minutes.
The Tribesmen managed to remain in control for the duration of the first half and went into the changing rooms three points up at half time.
The final burst to life in the 37th minute when Jack Calahane bagged a goal for the Rebels.
That brought Cork within one point and they found themselves ahead by two points after 54 minutes.
Galway responded strongly however, getting a goal of their own with a few minutes of normal time remaining.
The match was tied at 1-13 to 1-13 as the game entered injury time before an extraordinary sequence of events saw both sides score a goal within a minute.
Galway had a last-minute free to win the game but unfortunately for the Tribesmen, it drifted just wide.
That left it Cork 2-13 - 2-13 Galway at the end of normal time with 20 minutes of extra-time to be played.
Cork started extra-time at a ferocious pace with Michael O’Neill putting one in the back of the Galway net within a minute of the game restarting.
The Rebels didn’t let up from there and extended their lead to six points with a few quick points.
Galway looked lost for answers and were unable to claw back a game they looked certain of winning with only two minutes remaining in injury time in the second half.
The Tribesmen did get a goal back with four minutes of extra time remaining but it proved too little too late for them in the end.
