Donegal started brightly with Jason McGee pointing after 35 seconds, but Dublin soon took control and hit the next five scores.

Ciaran Thompson replied with a free, before Donegal struck two goals in one minute with Jason McGee and Ryan McHugh both hitting the net.

Donegal led by three points at half-time, but Dublin came back strongly and hit the front when Niall Scully scored a goal in the 54th minute.

However, Donegal managed to stay in contention and when Eamonn Doherty was fouled in injury-time, Murphy held his nerve to score the equaliser.
