In a reversal of times, the Killadies followed the MSL teams, and there followed an even more intense game than the first!
Both teams came out strong and Claire Rockall lived up to her reputation, causing difficulties for Pyrobel Killester’s defence. However, the home team were not to be outdone, and went into halftime with a 2 point lead.
Both times came out in the second half with even more determination, but Christa Reed went on a run for Killester that saw them finish the 3rd quarter ahead 59-50. It was not over yet, though, and Maree fought well to get back into the game. The watching crowd was not disappointed with the ensuing battle, with Pyrobel Killester finally winning out by 3 points.
