The second half was an evenly contested affair with both teams enjoying periods of dominance. Moylagh added another goal through Eanna Brody finishing well through a crowed goals and with points from Joe Melia and Alan McCann it looked like Moylagh were on course for a comfortable win. Kilbride had other ideas and popped over 7 second half points to close the gap. As time was running out Kilbride drove forward and were rewarded with a superbly taken goal to tie the game at 2-11 each. From the resultant kick out Moylagh worked the ball well up the field and with the last kick of the game

This was a very entertaining game of football and both sets of players deserve great credit
