On the brink of losing a third game in the group stage of the Senior Football Championship, Daniel Mimnagh fired over a last gasp equalising point for Killoe in the Round 4 clash at Pairc na naGael, Dromard on Saturday evening last. 

Abbeylara . . . 0-12   Killoe Emmet Og . . . 0-12

Abbeylara looked like winning this tight contest when Nigel Rabbitt converted a free late in the game but Mimnagh showed a lot of composure in surging forward to land a well struck score in the third minute of stoppage time. 

The draw puts Abbeylara through to the quarter-finals with a game to spare while Emmet Og will also advance to the last eight if they score their expected win over Clonguish in the remaining group fixture in Monaduff on Friday night next.
