Seamus Boyle put Camp ahead but Dylan Murphy equalised. It looked like ending all square until Camp Junior’s Killian Falvey popped up with the winner with seven minutes to go.
The other game in the division ended on the same score-line. In this case Listowel Celtic travelled to their Killarney namesakes and also won 2-1. Michael Devlin got the goal for the home side but goals from Cillian Spillane and Devon McKenna gave Listowel Celtic the vpoints.
