Dungannon continued with their tenacious play and were rewarded with a goal of their own when Louise Casey latched onto a loose ball and the sliotar trickled over the line. The visitors were now in the ascendancy and a McErlean free was matched by a Drumsurn point with fifteen minutes gone.

McErlean then won the ball on the half way line and picked out Colton who sent the ball into the back of the net. Drumsurn responded with a point however before Pauline Barker netted another goal for Dungannon from another McErlean pin point pass.

Drumsurn showed their quality when they added two points either side of a McErlean added a point to close the half.

Half Time Drumsurn 2-5 Dungannon 3-4.

Drumsurn landed the first score of the second half with a point from a free. Dungannon however refused to buckle and grew in self belief. Two sublime goals followed as Colton added a rasper and McErlean threaded the sliotar through a wall of players to increase their team’s advantage with ten minutes gone.

Drumsurn were now on the back foot but two further scores followed in spite of the pressure they were under. Aoife Morgan went on a trademark mazy run to score her first point followed by a McErlean precision free with ten minutes to go.

A scrappy period of play followed before Drumsurn added another point and Rebecca Barker for the visitors added her first score with a well taken goal. In the five minutes of injury time Colton added another Dungannon goal and Barker sent over a point before Drumsurn wrapped up the game with a late goal.
