min­utes left it 3-14 to 1-12 and points from Rowe and Brian Dil­lon closer the gap fur­ther.

A bril­liantly ex­e­cuted goal from Rowe left four between the team with time al­most up. Gra­ham Reilly replied with a point at the other end be­fore Rowe net­ted from the penalty spot with the last kick of the game. DRUMCONRATH got back to win­ning ways in di­vi­sion four with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory over the vis­i­tors on Saturday evening.

The open­ing half was a closely con­tested af­fair with St Mary’s on tar­get with the first two points.

Drumconrath fi­nally got off the mark when the re­turn­ing Alan Byrne pointed from play on seven min­utes.

Pado Byrne with two con­verted frees even­tu­ally put the hosts ahead and fur­ther scores from Shaun Mur­ray, Daniel Byrne and Sean McMa­hon left Drumconrath lead­ing 0-6 to 0-3 at the break.

Far­relly ham­mered home a goal just 23 sec­onds af­ter the restart and soon added a free as Drumconrath be­gan to lay claim to the points on of­fer. St Mary’s added a point of their own be­fore Alan Byrne and Jamie Myles replied to leave it 1-9 to 0-4 by the 40th minute.

Michael Ever­ard found the net for St Mary’s but Drumconrath were well on top at this stage and Alan Byrne added an­other two points.

Any hope St Mary’s had of tak­ing some­thing from the game dis­ap­peared when Stephen Crosby and Alan Byrne struck for quick-fire goals to put the game out of reach.
