Beragh will have to wait at least another week before they discover the identity of their Division Three promotion play-off opponents. Eskra and Killeeshil played out an entertaining draw at Eskra in a match where both sides enjoyed periods of supremacy but failed to make the most of the chances they created when on top.

The home side lost midfielder Martin Mc Ginley to a black card after three minutes and although they led 0-2 to 0-1 after eight minutes they failed to score again until four minutes before the break. In the interim Killeeshil took over and hit 1-4 as the visitors opened up a six point lead. Points from Pascal Donaghy, Ruairi O’Neill and Ciaran O’Neill as well as a fine goal from the boot of Cormac Donaghy put Killeeshil in a strong position entering the closing five minutes of the first half.

With half time approaching Eskra landed two points courtesy of Conor O’Hagan and the Emmetts went in at the break with a spring in their step.

The second half saw a much improved Eskra team take to the field. Their work rate increased considerably and after Johnny Hackett converted a penalty and Aaron Kelly lofted over a fine point, Eskra moved ahead. However with three minutes left on the clock a Bernard O’Neill 45 tied the game on 1-7 apiece.

Both sides had further chances late in the game. A free from the boot of Joe Mc Carroll put Eskra in front again but Pascal Donaghy was coolness personified as he tied the match with virtually the last kick of the game on a score of 1-8 apiece.
