Kil­bride 1-10, Knockananna 1-7: Kil­bride made sure of their place in In­ter­me­di­ate foot­ball for an­other year when they beat Knockananna in the semi- fi­nal of the rel­e­ga­tion play-off at Balt­in­glass.

Knockananna played with the wind in the first-half but were slow enough to get go­ing. En­ter­ing the sec­ond quar­ter a great point from out near the side line by Seán Canna lifted the team. They fired over some good points to lead by 0-6 to 0-2 at half-time.

Kil­bride made the most of the wind ad­van­tage in the sec­ond-half. Sub Paul Keogh and Ciarán Jones kicked over some great points, Jones boxed over two more and mid­way through the sec­ond-half they were lead­ing by 0-8 to 06 with Knockananna still to score. Paul Keogh, who made a huge dif­fer­ence when he was in­tro­duced at half-time made the open­ing for the goal, fin­ished by Niall Too­lis.

Knockananna get one last chance to save their sta­tus when they take on Val­ley­mount in the fi­nal play-off.
