Nenagh started brightly taking the lead very early on with a well worked goal finished by Filip Wiewiora. Killmallock hit back with an equaliser shortly after.
As the first half was drawing to a close, killmallock struck another goal taking them in 2-1 up at the break.
Nenagh battled hard and in the dying, moments scored a fantastically worked equaliser finished by Bartosz Zelek. The game then headed for extra time.
In the first half of extra time Killmallock struck two goals in quick succession.
