Glyde 1-11 St Kevin's 1-8
Glyde started poorly despite taking the lead through Barry Sharkey after 6 minutes but Kevins struck back with a well worked goal from Patrick Clarke just 4 minutes later after Seanie Crosbie had levelled. Indeed if Kevin's had not kicked eight 1st half wides including another goal chance, the result could have proved much different. As it was, Glyde struggled to cope with the Kevin's mass defence and did not seem able to execute their own sweeper system correctly. They did convert the next 3 scores through Sharkey again and 2 from the as usual excellent Trevor O'Brien. However Cein Callan for Kevin's converted 2 free kicks to keep their noses in front 1-3 to 0-4 at half time.
O'Brien, Duffy and Niall Sharkey added points and Glyde looked set to rack up a big score. But again Kevin's came back and points by Karl Martin and Aaron Roche gave them momentum. Duffy scored Glydes last score of the game with still 14 minutes left but Kevin's could only add another 2 points through Crosbie and Callan and Glyde fought hard in their own half to secure the win.
Glyde had some good performances from David Brennan and Aaron Devlin whilst Kevin's Conor McCullough and Andrew Campbell also played well.
