Killybegs produced a strong final quarter against Milford to record their second win and keep alive their top eight hopes.
1-14 to 0-06 in Eamonn Byrne Memorial Park
The visitors had competed very well up to that and after it had been level 0-04 apiece at half-time they briefly led after the break and only an excellent save but home keeper Corey Byrne denied them.
That narrow escape seemed to kick-start Killybegs into a higher gear. They converted a number of points and then Jack McSharry burst through and blasted the ball to the net and the victory was secure, it finished 1-14 to 0-06.
Killybegs move to four points, a win in their final game will ensure a top eight finish.
Milford can begin preparations for another relegation series as a bottom eight finish is now certain.
