Late goals from Jason Flynn and Eoghan Nevin gave Tommy Larkins their second draw on Saturday as they finished level at 2-11 to 0-17 with St. Thomas in Duggan Park.
With Conor Cooney leading the charge supported by David, Bernard and Darragh Burke, St. Thomas led 0-10 to 0-6 at half-time.
But after Flynn’s 50th minute penalty put Larkins 1-10 to 0-12 ahead, points for Eanna Burke, Brendan Farrell, Cooney and Damien McGlynn looked to be enough for St. Thomas before Nevin’s equalising strike.
