Killeshin started well playing against a strong wind and after 5 minutes they were 1-0 up through Dylan Regan. On 10 minutes Luke Nolan shot just wide, on 18 minutes Patrick Brannigan missed a chance and a minute later they were made to pay as a defensive mix up let Pats score to make it 1:1. With the weather conditions bad both teams tried hard to play the ball around and on the half hour Frankie Dowling played a lovely through ball for Regan to run onto and make it 2-1 for the hosts. Straight out of the blocks at the start of the second half and Dowling was unlucky from distance as his shot was just wide. Regan had another chance but couldn't steer it past the keeper on 55 minutes. On 60 minutes Brannigan had a shot saved by the pats keeper 5 minutes later Sean Dollard made a great save to keep Killeshin in front but a few minutes later pats were level after Killeshin failed to clear a set piece. On 85 minutes pats were in front once again from a set piece. On 90 minutes pats were awarded a penalty but Sean Dollard made it a great save to keep it 3-2 to Pats at full time. A good team performance by Killeshin with Dylan Regan, Niall Scully and Tyrone Dempsey excellent

In the second half New Oak didn't lie down and were unlucky not to score when they hit the cross bar. However, Burrin drove on and, even after receiving a bad gash to the head, Cian Byrne showed a captains performance by battling on to create his own chance to get Burrins 6th.

Two minutes later, however, it was that man Dorgan who lifted a precision ball over the Bagenalstown back four to O'Shea and the front man got his second of the day.

Killeshin were in control now and increased the lead further just one minute later when Aodhan Lowry converted an Ivan Murphy cross. Killeshin were well on top now and when Aaron Dorgan was taken down in the box, he then stepped up to convert the resulting spot kick with 38 minutes gone.

On the stroke of half time, it was 0-5 to the away side when a super effort from Dorgan, pressing and winning the ball in the Bagenalstown penalty area set up Daniel McGrath.

The second half saw a more resolute defensive effort from the home side and despite dominating possession Killeshin were restricted to long range efforts from Jack Byrne and Daniel McGrath.

With only four minutes remaining the away sides pressure paid off when some slick interplay between Byrne and Josh Bienko lead to John O'Shea completing his hat-trick.
