POSSIBLE title contenders LB Rovers dropped two points when they were held to a draw by Killorglin.
The North Kerry side seemed to be steaming for victory in the first half after goals from Philip Moran and a sublime goal from a free kick near half way by Anthony O'Connor. Killorglin fought back in the second half with goals from Darren O'Riordan and Alan O'Connor and were good value for their league point.
The man of the match for LB Rovers was their goalkeeper Darren O'Connor who kept his side in the game with a whole series of outstanding saves.
Newtown Athletic 2 Sneem Santos 2
