Cromane needed a good start to the second period but it was the home side who opened the better and Tim Scanlon fired over from play. John O''Brien the regular full back was placed at midfield and had a fine point to stretch the lead. Gary McGrath Cromane's best player kicked a fine point to reduce the deficit but this was quickly cancelled by an Anthony Maher effort from play and he followed this with a pointed 40 meter freeto kill off the game as a contest. Cromane got one back via McGrath but Tom Dillon had the final say in the game and pointed 2 late frees forprecious County League points.
