Glyde 2-17 St Kevin's 4-08
In the opening quarter, Kevin's fast paced half Forward line was causing all sorts of problems for the Glyde defence and this was underlined after eight minutes when Cian Callan scored the first of his three goals to open up a margin on the home side. However injuries in their Forward line saw the withdrawal of both Karl Maher and Lee Crosbie after only 12 and 16 minutes respectively and corresponded with Glydes midfield pairing of David Devanney and Ciaran Sheridan taking a hold of the game.
Glyde scored 4 unanswered points before Sheridan finished off a long run from midfield to crack home a shot into the left hand corner to put them ahead by 4 points. Kevin's tried to respond and scored 2 points of their own before the excellent Gavin Duffy in the corner for Glyde, hit a long range point to leave Glyde ahead by 3 at half time. It was to be Duffy's last action as he retired injured at half time to be replaced by Barry Sharkey.
Glyde went up the pitch and Barry Sharkey pointed. O'Brien followed with 3 unanswered points went the impossible began to be possible.
First Callan scored a goal dispite the best efforts of David Brennan with 5 minutes left. Then Kevin's were awarded another penalty following a foul on Seanie Crosbie. Again Brennan saved, but this time Patrick Clarke followed up and scored a goal on the rebound. Paul Duffy added a point a minute later to leave the Kevin's only one point behind heading into injury time. However Glydes Dion Conlon kept his cool and slotted over two points to give Glyde a three point cushion at the final whistle.
