Colmcille played with the breeze in the first half and opened their account with a fine effort from Gabriel Reilly after 5 minutes. Colmcille were on top in the opening quarter and went three points up with a free from Michael Kilbride after 13 minutes followed by a fine effort from play 2 minutes later. Shroid began get a grip around the middle of the field and scored 4 points on the trot with scores from Eamon Wall (2), Philip Dardis and Karl Taylor. Colmcille squandered chances by kicking some bad wides however frees from Michael Kilbride and Gabriel Reilly put Colmcille one point ahead with 24 minutes gone. Just before half time, Shroid were awarded a penalty when Dermot Kiernan was adjudged to have committed a foul after a long ball was floated in the square by Philip Dardis. The penalty was slotted home by David Mulligan to give Shroid a two point lead at the break (Colmcille 0-5, Shroid 1-4).   


In the second half, Colmcille introduced Kevin Farrell to midfield and he made an immediate impact by firing over a point after seven minutes. Colmcille began to dominate the game but could not make possession count on the score board kicking more bad wides and squandering a few goal chances. Shroid played well on the counter attack and Neill Dunne fired over two frees before Kevin Farrell pointed for Colmcille in the 49th minute. A further pointed free from Neill Dunne put Shroid three points into the lead and while Colmcille put pressure on the Shroid goal with Peter Darcy now at full forward but they could not get past a resolute Shroid defence.
