The game had an early start (10 o' clock) and it was Ballyea who started the game the better and were well on top in the early stages of this encounter. Although Jamie Butler and J.C. McMahon picked off some good scores Broadford/SOB found themselves 10 points down late in the first half. The team kept plugging away with strong forward play from David Boland and further scores from J.C. and Niall Moloney and finished the half 8 points down.
The Broadford/SOB team that came out in the second half was a different team. Conor Phelan moved out the field and won some vital possessions bringing in Cian Cremins, Niall Moloney and Jamie Butler. Goal chances came easier and with 1 each from Niall Moloney J.C. McMahon and Jamie Butler Broadford/Sob were in the ascendency. The backs fought for every ball with stand out performances from the likes of Cian Mulqueen who held firm on a number of occasions to snuff out any goal threats. It was only with the last puck of the game that Ballyea pulled the game back to a draw. Altogether the team showed massive character to fight back in the second half and did themselves proud with a well earned draw. They now play Tulla in the Quarter Finals.
