Kildress opened the second half with a couple of unanswered points before a Sinead McLaughlin goal brought Drumragh back into the game. However, Kildress kept adding points from Monaghan, McNally and Stacey Rafferty before a second McCrory goal offered some hope to the home side. However a McNally goal extinguished Drumragh’s faint hopes of a comeback. Kildress eased further ahead and in the end ran out comfortable winners.
