Ballydonoghue 0-10 Dr. Crokes 2-19
Dr. Crokes gained promotion with an easy win over a Ballydonoghue side who had nothing to play for, secure in their mid-table position. Dr. Crokes looked the bigger threat throughout most of the game but Ballydonogue held their own for most of the first half thanks to a couple fine saves from their goalkeeper Darren O’ Connor and some
good points by Paul Kennelly. Crokes did eventually find the net on twenty four minutes when Bryan O’Shea goaled. Half time score Ballydonoghue 0-8. Dr. Crokes 1-7.
The second half was all Dr. Crokes as Ballydonoghue went into cruise control, Crokes adding 1-10 to Ballydonghue’s two points. Crokes’ second goal came from Mark O’ Shea.

Laune Rangers 4-16 Finuge 1-10
A very understrength Finuge were beaten by an impressive Laune Rangers desperately trying to avoid relegation. Fiachra Clifford was to the fore despite Finuge’s best efforts and Laune Rangers emerged as comprehensive winners.

Annascaul 0-9 Keel 0-10
Keel 0-10 Annascaul 0-9
This final round County League game was an important one for both sides, with both teams looking for a win. Annascaul opened the scoring early on in this close and competitive encounter. Keel notched up their first point shortly after, and quickly built up their lead. Keel led by 2 points at half-time on a score line of 0-07 to 0-05.
The second half was played at a faster pace and with more intensity from both sides. Annascaul fought back to level the game, however Keel again took the lead, which they held until the final whistle. Annascaul missed
a number of scoring opportunities, and in the end Keel won by just one point, 0-10 to 0-9 points. Annascaul will now play in Division 2 next year, and Keel have retained Division 3 status for 2019.
