Ballygiblin eventually came out on top, with a large impact coming from their bench, and Darragh Flynn in particular. 

Flynn knocked over four points upon his introduction, one of which was directly from a sideline cut.

By the completion of regulation time, the two sides had been tied on 10 occasions in what was a tight affair throughout.

Ballygiblin held a narrow lead throughout the duration of extra time, with Flynn and Russell Rovers' Josh Beausang swapping points but the latter could not lead his side to past a tough defence. 

Joseph O'Sullivan scored seven points, with five coming from placed balls, and he was on hand late on to seal the victory for his Ballygiblin side.
