The pressure mounted on every possession as the Clans engineered a free towards the close. Smith, of course, kicked it to install the Clans with a crucial single-point lead.

Paul Gore, breaking through the Mattock cover, neatly put the ball away along the ground. Mark McCanns side actually opened the game with a goal in their first attack - one that wouldnt have looked out of place in Oriel Park. Mark Newell stopped the rot and Smith notched his first free of the night to cut the gap. Aaron OBrien and Hugh Donnelly bagged the majors after fine running moves. The signs looked ominous for the Clans, but deep they dug. The goal had a negative effect on the Dundalk men, though, as it actually sparked John Kennedys side into action.They struck a frenzied 2-4 to no-reply in a breath-taking passage of football.

Mattock are in another ladies final, they finally won the B final last season after numerous attempts and then in their first season in the A they make the final! The Fechins ladies are very strong and have been knocking about this past few seasons and the fact Mattock ladies beat their fierce rivals Glyde in the semi could have an major effect on the tie.

Both sides were constructed to play on the counter and Conall McKeever revelled in the pattern of this type of game. Failing to kill the ball when a possible goal was on for Mattock, the Clans went coast-to-coast and with a trademark driving run from McKeever, he buried to the net - three in it at the break and momentum with the Clans.

Grainne Reid started the flurry after a Hannah Carolan effort came back off the woodwork and they edged two points in front after to a fierce drive from Eccles was backed up by a brace from Maria Reid. Alan Fedigan and Peter Dooleys half-time team talk certainly had the desired affect as Mattock hit the first four scores of the second-half.
