Clann Eireann 1-10 Sarsfields 3-08
Trailing by six points, with twenty minutes remaining, Sarsfields made a dramatic comeback to win by four points at Clann Eireann Park. Thomas McAlinden sparked the game to life getting the touch on a free that was dropping short to send the ball to the net. Points from Michael Stevenson and Paul McGeown closed the gap to a point before  Thomas McAlinden grabbed his second goal in a similar move to his first goal. This edged the Highmoss into the lead for the first time in the match. With a point in the match it looked like Colin Stevenson had sealed the victory with a goal from distance that had just dropped in. It transpired however that it was none other than Thomas McAlinden who had got the final touch for his third goal.
