Late late show seals it for Ballylanders

Ballylanders 0-9 Monaleen 0-7

Inter county player Muiris Gavin was forced off before the interval with a suspected broken collarbone and he was a huge loss to Monaleen.

Monaleen led 0-6 to 0-5 at the break. Mistakes were made by both teams in the thrilling second half. Scores were hard to get from two powerful defensive set-ups. But it was Ballylanders who lifted four great points - two in time added on.

Both sides are now guaranteed at least a play-off spot.
