Drumhowan however finished  the half brightly with 2 points coming from  the boots of Kieran Mooney and Mark Mc Cabe to leave the half time score Drumhowan 0-5 Scotstown 1-4.Drumhowan opened the 2nd half in whirlwind fashion kicking 7 points without reply  coming from Mark Mc Cabe x2 Ciaran Duffy, Kieran Mooney and Kevin Mooney x 3.  After a scoreless 8 minutes Scotstown kicked 2 points with Mark Mc Cabe replying with 2 points  entering the closing stages. Scotstown stages a mini revival scoring 1-1  to  leave only 2 points in it going into the final minute.
