EXTRA TIME WAS needed but still could not seperate Galway champions Ahascragh/Fohenagh and Mayo’s Ballyhaunis in the Connacht intermediate hurling final.
The three-in-a-row Mayo champions set up the tie after beating Roscommon side Oran in their semi-final on Wednesday night.

Ahascragh/Fohenagh led by three points at half time and were five points up twenty minutes into the second half.
Two goals from the Mayo side in the closing minutes gave them a lifeline and forced the game to extra-time.
A point a piece in the first period of ten minutes called for a pulsating finish to the game.
The sides scored just two more points each, as the fixture finished all square at 0-19 to 2-13.
The replay has been fixed for Athleague next Saturday, 12 November.
A thriller in the Connacht Inter hurling final today! @AhasFohGAA and @BallyhaunisGAA will have to do it all again next Sat. #TheToughest https://t.co/psRDUFWxmP
