St. Nauls responded strongly to the widening gap by scoring 2 points within quick succession. Cloughaneely battled strongly to maintain their distance with subsequent points from Darren Ferry and a Cillian Gallagher free; however a goal from St. Nauls 21 mins into the 2nd half quickly brought them within 1 point of the visiting side. St. Nauls managed to steal into a 1 point lead, 27 mins into the 2nd half, for the first time since the start of the game; and they managed to hold that lead for the remainder of normal time. Time was on Cloughaneely’s side as the referee announced 6 ½ mins of injury time was to be played; Cloughaneely managed to hold St. Nauls scoreless during injury time; while John Fitzgerald ensured that Cloughaneely went home with 1 point added to the league table as he converted a free which was the last kick of the game!
