The second half was nip-and-tuck and St Eunan’s moved into the lead with a free from Conor O’Donnell in the 46th minute.

Cookstown regained the lead when Tiarnan Quinn scored 1-1 in quick succession, before Conor O’Donnell and Tiernan McNamee were both given their marching orders.

Shane O’Donnell scored three late points for St Eunan’s College to send the game to extra-time.
