Watch: Laois’ Zach Tuohy Shocks Melbourne With Incredible Last Second Score

Share and Enjoy !

Zach Tuohy was the hero for the Geelong Cats as a last-second mark gave him the opportunity to snatch the win from Melbourne in a gripping end to this AFL clash. 

Geelong were behind 98-94 with less than 10 seconds remaining before Touhy plucked the ball from the air to secure the mark and have the opportunity to score the winner.

The Laois native is one of Ireland’s best exports to the Australian game, held his nerve to secure the six-pointer as the Melbourne players did their best to distract the 28-year-old.

Earlier this season, Tuohy became just the fourth Irish player to reach 150 appearances in the AFL.

Tuohy told Seven: “It was incredible. We never felt like we were out of it. We underperformed for patches during the game but this group has this innate feeling that we can win.

“Unless it’s a ridiculous margin we know we have a chance “
