Kilkeel had started the stronger of the two sides, and a goal in the opening quarter gave them an early three point lead. Keady kept themselves in the game, with points from Hughes, Jack McClelland and Conor McNally levelling the sides at the break 1-02 to 0-5.
The second half started in much the same way, with Kilkeel landed two fine scores to edge themselves ahead again before McNally put Keady ahead for the first time with a goal just before the second water break. To their credit, Kilkeel battled to again lead by two, before the late penalty drama.
