ing a good James Clarke ef­fort to trail by one at the break, 1-5 to 1-4.

Af­ter the restart, St Pa­trick’s con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate and en­tered into a 1-9 to 1-6 lead with points from Pierce Kearins and David Giblin help­ing the home side gain con­trol.

Strug­gling in most sec­tors, En­nis­crone/Kil­glass looked in trou­ble but man­aged to sal­vage the sit­u­a­tion with a strong fin­ish.

An ex­cel­lent Kevin Caw­ley run ended in Tom Ma­hon be­ing hauled down in the big square and Shane Har­gadon dis­patched the re­sul­tant penalty well to get his team back on level terms, 1-9 to 2-6.

A point from Michael Moyles fol­lowed to put the vis­i­tors in front, and then an­other goal from the boot of Tom Ma­hon gave them a four-point cush­ion.

Ciaran O’Dowd then kicked an ex­cel­lent point to edge En­nis­crone/Kil­glass into a 3-8 to 1-9 lead.

St Pa­trick’s bat­tled hard but time was against them and de­spite two late points, it was En­nis­crone/ Kil­glass who ended as win­ners.

St Pa­trick’s are trav­el­ling to play St John’s on Satur­day while En­nis­crone/Kil­glass wel­come neighbours Castle­con­nor to Quiga­bar. Both games are at 7pm.
