05/05/2013:  Kildysart drew with Kilmurray Ibrikane with just 7 points a piece in a very slow moving match in Quilty.  Kildysart took an early 2 point lead by the 6 minute with points from Brian Moloney and Brian O'Sullivan and were ahead 3-1 with point from Christy Clancy in 19th minute.  Kilmurray came back level by half time, with all their points coming from frees.

Kildysart had the aid of the breeze in second half but it was KIB who took the lead on the restart.  Ger Kelly and Niall Ginnane replaced C.Clancy and B. Moloney in the 37th minute but Kilmurray went ahead 3 points to 6 by the 49th minute.  A Ger Kelly free and points from Keith Murphy and Brian O'Sullivan all within 3 minutes had the Blues level again.  Keith O'Connor then put Kildysart in front before KIB levelled with 2 minutes of normal time remaining.  Six additional minutes were played but neither side was able to get the elusive score for victory.
