On 29 October 2016, Oran won the senior hurling final in a sequel to the first of the two clashes between the two hurling giants of Roscommon.[citation needed] Oran who trailed for most of the game kept ticking the scoreboard ticking with King Jerry Fallon on the frees. In the last minute of stoppage time Oran trailed by a point. Oran had just earned a free on their own 21 yard line. Against a 50 km wind, King Gerry struck a waterlogged sliotar over the bar against all odds.[citation needed] The game was drawn and extra time ensued. Right from the off, Oran took the game by the scruff of the neck and scored 2 goals and 3 points against Four Roads. Oran led by 9 points and had made a 10-point turn around since Four Roads last score. The 8 in a row champions were denied their ninth trophy by the Oran side.[citation needed]
