It just seemed destined to end in a draw and it did, a superb, massive, long range point from former Down player Adrian Scullion brings the sides level again and the referee blows the final whistle. The last two points of the game came from the two full backs with Scullion’s point an absolutely monster of a kick.It will be a replay as the sides finish 0-6 apiece.

Loughmacrory have taken the lead with a point from their full back and captain Damien Mc Aleer. 0-6 to 0-5 to the men in gold and black. Could that be enough to take them through to the last four of the championship?

With time almost up it looks like Eskra may have salvaged something from the game as Ryan Gartland brings the sides level just as the game enters additional time. It is all at the discretion of the referee now.

If Eskra lose this one they will rue the ten wides they have managed to run up over the course of the game. They have had the chances they have just failed to capitalise on them as the game enters the last four minutes of action.The men in white and black have struck the post on three occasions in the second half alone. Stay tuned and we will bring you any changes or major talking points.

Less than eight minutes left and only one score so far in the second half, hard to believe but true. Perhaps we are in for a some real drama in the last few minutes? Let’s hope so.

Ten minutes to go in the second half and the score remains Loughmacrory 0-5, Eskra 0-4 and if anything conditions are deteriorating.

Early in the second half and it is Loughmacrory who add to their total first to go 0-5 to 0-4 ahead with the score coming from Southampton based teacher Stephen Donaghy.

Well it is half time in Dunmoyle and it could not be any closer as Loughmacrory and Eskra are tied at four points apiece with Enda Ward and Stephen Donaghy on target for the Loch while Peter Hughes and Conor Mc Girr have been doing the scoring for Eskra. Conditions are far from ideal for good football with the wind and rain and slippery surface making life difficult for both sides. will be bringing you updates from Eskra v Loughmacrory in Dunmoyle from 4.30pm.
