St Loman's will meet Tyrrellspass in the Westmeath SFC final for the fourth time in eight years when they lock horns later this month.
In today's semi-finals at TEG Cusack Park, St Loman's were 0-13 to 0-11 winners over The Downs, while Tyrrellspass defeated Athlone 0-16 to 0-13.
Late scores from John Heslin and Ronan O'Toole saw St Loman's through to a sixth successive Flanagan Cup decider. Declan Kelly's side turned around a 0-7 to 0-1 deficit early in the first-half to eke out the win. The Downs had to play the final 15 minutes with 14 men having lost Conor Coughlan to a black card and that proved crucial.

One-point winners over his native club Coralstown-Kinnegad in the last-eight, Emmet McDonnell's Tyrrellspass showed their battling qualities again to overcome Athlone in the earlier throw-in. Few will give the 'Pass a chance of beating St Loman's having conceded 5-9 in a 14-point loss to the Blues in the groupstage six weeks ago.Tweet
