Ballinahinch 0-19
Cashel 0-14

Ballinahinch began this year's championship with a five point win over Cashel in Cappawhite last Sunday. 

The first half was slow to begin with Ballinahinch dominating but could not shake off a determined Cashel side. Ballinahinch created some goal chances during this period but could not find the net. Cashel were down 0-11 to 0-06 at half time having failed to score from play, but would have the aid of the wind in the second half.

Cashel began much brighter in the second half scoring three unanswered points. Ballinahinch responded with points of their own through Brendan Ryan. Cashel could not reduce the lead to less than two points and pushed for a goal late on. Ballinahinch finished the stronger to win 0-19 to 0-14. Shane McGrath, Brendan Ryan and David Gleeson were to the fore for Ballinahinch on the scoreboard.
