On 23 minutes, David Collins sent in a dipping sideline that deceived Conor Ryan and landed in the net, and they led 2-9 to 0-2 at the break.

Hurney settled the outcome 30 seconds after the restart. Mark Ferncombe’s pass picked out Hurney who shot a low rasper to the net. The deadly Mark Gorman kept the scoreboard ticking over to secure 19-point win.
