Ballinkillen got off to a good start with a goal from Eamonn Normanly on 5 minutes. Louis Brennan followed with a point a minute later. Setanta's number 9, who put in a strong performance throughout this game, scored  after that to bring his team back to within a point. Louis Brennan goaled on 12 minutes, followed by a point from Eric English on 13. Ballinkillen started to dominate at this point and the first half finished on a score of 6-3 to 1-0 to the visitors, scores coming from Louis Brennan (1-1), Jack Ryan (1-0), Eoin Whelan (1-0) and Eric English (0-1)

Setanta defended strongly in the second half and only Eamonn Normanly managed to hit the home team's net. Some fine points came for Ballinkillen from Jack Ryan, Jack Treacy, Eric English, Louis Brennan and Eoin Whelan.

Donnacha Murphy, Eamonn Normanly and Jack Ryan all put in strong performances for Ballinkillen. The Setanta goal keeper made some excellent saves, particularly in the second half.
