Killian Moynagh set up Aogan Farrell for a good score before Paddy Rudden punched the ball to the net in a ruck of players. Points from Smith, Mc Kenna and Walsh extended the Laragh lead, bur Drumgoon to their credit fought back with well taken scores from Keith Fannin and Conal Farrell to leave the scoreline at half time 0-10 to 1-09 in Laraghs favour. Laragh opened strongly in the second half and two goals in quick succession from Paddy Rudden and Jack Mc Kenna, set an uphill task for the homeside. Drumgoon to their credit continued to work hard and points from Aogan Farrell and Keith Fannin reduced the deficit. Drumgoon introduced Michael Mc Donald in an effort to shore up midfield and they were now getting plenty of possession. Play continued end to end and points from Jack Mc Kenna and Sean Tierney completed the scoring for Laragh, while Drumgoon replied through Simon Boyle and Shane Smith.
