Aided by the elements in the first half Moylagh raced into a 2-2 to 0-0 lead thanks to 1-2 from Willie McGrath and another goal from Aengus Fanning. Dunsany stemmed the tide mid-way through the half; striking back with 1-2 of their own.

The tables were turned in the second half with Dunsany putting Moylagh under the cosh for long periods of the half. 6 unanswered points from the home side left them a point to the good as the game entered its closing stages. Moylagh dug deep however and a Willie McGrath point levelled the sides with about 5 minutes remaining. Both sides had chances late on to snatch victory however the game ended level at Dunsany 1-8 to Moylagh 2-5.
