Clanmaurice lead for long periods of the original tie before being pegged back late on, only to once more take the lead with a late goal that appeared to have secured victory for the Kerry side. However, Kilmessan responded immediately with some determined attacking play that saw them score a dramatic late goal to equalise in the dying seconds of injury time.
