However they then scored a goal from Sean Lehane on the 24th minute and followed up with 2 points from frees by Damien Clifford. Listry led at half time 1-5 to 1-2. Listry extended their lead with a point from Kieran Murphy after the restart but Firies then came into the game scoring 4 points without reply. 3 of these points came from frees from William Courtney and 1 from play by Colm O Shea to leave the sides level. Listry through a John Foley point went back into the lead but a point from Firies with the last kick of the game gave Firies a share of the spoils. Listry now play Kenmare this weekend in the last round of this league.
