Galway 0-17, Kerry 2-06 (result)
Galway advanced to the All-Ireland U21 football final with a deserved five-point victory over Kerry at Cusack Park, Ennis.
Playing with the aid of a strong breeze, the Westerners led by 0-09 to no score after 20 minutes.
Kerry introduced Australian Rules star Tadhg Kenneally and the Kingdom then replied with two goals and a point in a four-minute spell.
Colm Cooper grabbed the first goal with Declan O'Sullivan netting the second.
Galway were two points to the good (0-10 to 0-02) at the break.
In the second-half Kerry were reduced to 14 men when centre-back James Cahillane received a red card for striking Mathew Clancy in an off-the-ball incident.
With this dismissal went Kerry's chances of mounting a revival as Galway ran out easy winners in a tame second-half.
