This started though a brilliant comeback with the boys scoring 1-5 without reply similar to Ferns in the first half. The goal yet again came from M0ssy before Fhedlim and then a Mossy free levelled the game with 12 still left. Unfortunately this seemed to drive Ferns on and they responded by scoring 3 points. With time two minutes over, the lads needed something special and a long hopeful. last ball was launched in and Pad O’Connor did brilliantly to catch, turn and launch a high ball off the top bar into the net. The referee blew the final whistle on the kickout.
