Some deadly finishing and great long-range striking took the game out of Glenroe’s reach with scores going into the final water break 3-14 to 0-11 points to Garryspillane. Despite a late goal from Mark O’Connell, it was not enough to get Glenroe back in the game with Garryspillane running out eventual winners by a score line of 3-21 to 1-13.
