Shane O’Neill opened the scoring with a fine point on two minutes followed soon after by a Barry Doyle point. Davitt’s replied with two points of their own while James O’Reilly scored a goal to restore Tinryland’s advantage. The scores were level when Davitt’s scored a penalty after John Dunphy fouled in the area. Alan Barrett scored a point to put Tinryland ahead before Davitt’s scored another goal to lead again. Tinryland then scored three more points from Mark Townsend, James O’Reilly and Barry Doyle to leave the scores 1-6 to 2-2 in favour of Tinryland at the break.
After the break Davitt’s regained the initiative, quickly scoring 1-2 without reply. Tinryland made hard work of getting back into the game but 7 unanswered points from James O’Reilly (2), Mark Townsend (2) and 1 each from Shane O’Neill, John Paul Moore and Alan Barrett brought Tinryland within sight of victory.
