The home team goaled again twice from Conor Dowling and Sean Kinsella before Ballinkillen got off the mark with a point from Cian Delaney in the 11th minute. Louis Brennan goaled for Ballinkillen, but the first half was dominated by Burren Rangers, making full use of the wind advantage to go in 5-2 to 1-1 up at half time with some further fine scores from Sean Kinsella (0-1) and Andrew Farrell (2-1).

Padraig Nolan took over goalkeeping duties in the second half and made some very brave saves for Ballinkillen, before going off injured following another heroic attemp to hold back the tide.
