Turley earns Down a second chance

Down 1-21 London 1-21

(After extra-time)

Down twice came from behind to draw in Newry despite having star forward Paul Braniff sent off five minutes into the second half.

London fired over seven unanswered points for a three-point lead. But two minutes into added-time Conor Woods fired a 35-metre free into the net to send the game to extra-time.

London's Lee Mackey then saw red, but both sides were restored to 15 men for extra-time. London looked to have won it with a point from Jonathan Maher only for Michael Turley to level it.
