Match report courtesy of Teamtalkmag: “Killyclogher left it very, very late when corner forward Simon O’Neill hit a last gasp goal to overturn a one point deficit against Ardboe and snatch victory on a score-line of 1-12 to 0-13. Ardboe had earlier taken the lead for the first time in the game and seemed set to head back to the Lough-shore with the points. the home side led by two at the break 0-8 to 0-6 with Aidy Kelly, Leo Meenan, James Carlin, Ciaran Gervin and Kyle Coney on target for their respective teams. Meenan extended his team’s lead just after the break but shay Mc Guigan landed three monster frees to tie the game. Points from James Carlin and Fergal Meenagh edged the home side ahead but by this stage there was only one team with momentum. The Rossas landed three fine scores in a row including a fine point from substitute Brian Mc Guigan to move ahead before O’Neill broke their hearts and sealed the win for Killyclogher with his late goal.”
