The match sparked into life in the second half, the visitors levelled the game after twenty seconds, but Owen Mulligan kicked a great score from play minutes later. Donaghmore kicked two unanswered points to open a 4-3 lead, but scores from Owen Mulligan and Raymond Mulgrew put Fr Rocks ahead. The visitors equalised, before a brilliant goal from Marty Murray on forty five minutes put three between the sides. The teams exchanged scores throughout the remainder of the game, with Brian Mulligan and Raymond Mulgrew the Cookstown marksmen, as they held on to secure two vital league points. Final score 1-7 to 0-7.  Cookstown scorers - M Murray (1-0), O Mulligan (0-2,1free), R Mulgrew (0-2), C Mullan (0-1) B Mulligan (0-1), M Carberry (0-1).
