Having scored the first three points, Colman’s surged clear when Barry Murphy scored a fine goal and Brian Roche was on hand to make it 2-4 to 0-1 on 17 minutes.
Conleth Ryan followed immediately with a third goal while Jamie Sheehan and Shane Ryan added points as they retired at half-time with a 3-7 to 0-1 lead.
Tommy O’Connell’s free-taking, allied to scores from Declan O’Hanlon, allowed CBC to eat into the lead in the second half, with Roche getting Colman’s only score of the third quarter. When CBC sub Jamie Corkery pointed soon after his introduction, it was 3-10 to 0-11 and the same player went close to a goal but his shot flew across goal and wide.
Diarmuid Lenihan and Murphy settled Colman’s with late points, meaning Eoin Moloney’s late goal for CBC was just a consolation.
