Glyde 2-11 Roche 1-7
Playing with the wind in the first half Glyde took an early lead from Full forward Brian Duffy after only a minute. They struggled to score however in the opening half as the wind swirled and caused havoc with everyone's accuracy.
Gavin Duffy added a second after 6 minutes after Roche had equalised and added further points from Mark O'Brien, Aaron Devlin, Dion Conlon and 2 from Trevor O'Brien to leave the score 0-7 to 0-2 at half time. With such a strong wind, Glyde might have hoped for more but their brilliant second half performance was the real key.
With Trevor adding 3 lovely second half free kicks and Ciaran Sheridan landing a monster free kick, they had enough to tick the score board over and had the presence to maintain possession and not let Roche back in. Even when Fiachra Sheridan pulled his man down after 23 minutes and Barry O'Hare netted the resultant penalty, Glyde still held their nerve as Gerard Farrell and Aaron Devlin helped shore up a determined defence.
A Championship decider awaits against either Dunleer or Glen Emmets, who drew earlier, in 2 weeks and a near perfect season is looking a very real possibility.
