Final whistle in Nowlan Park

An Eoin Guilfoyle 67th minute free secured a draw for James Stephens  but couldn't deny O Loughlin Gaels a place in the league decider.

An injury time goal set up a dramatic finish to a contest the Gaels looked like winning having led 1-10 to 0-9 at half time with a Robbie Buckley goal and were four points clear on the hour.

They now face Dicksboro in the league decider.
