Ardagh Moydow . . . 2-10 Ballymahon . . . 1-13

Ten points in a row, six from their chief marksman Mark Connor (five frees), looked to have won the match for Ballymahon but Ardagh Moydow were thrown a lifeline with time almost up when the alert Carrigy pounced on the breaking ball after the opposing keeper Dean Reilly parried a dipping shot from Killian Farrell.
