Grangemockler were much more fruitful in their attack yielding a tally of 1-04 by the break.

The second half of the contest was a much improved version with some good individual performances. However the south boys always to be more threatening once they entered the north defence area. They notched up three points after ten minutes and thwarted off some certain goal opportunities with their very committed defence line. The north boys added two points to narrow their deficit to four points on a score of 1-06 to 1-02. However the south defence eventually leaked a late goal but still had enough on the score board to win the title with a two point margin .Grangemockler Ballyneale 1-07 Ballinahinch/Templederry 2-02.
