Pearses dominated the remainder of the first half with a goal after a magnificent solo from Bellew, and Keith Connell also found the net. Brian Sweeney had a first half tally of four points, three from frees. Sarsfields had the last score of the half , a point from a free by Ian Kelly to leave Pearses 3-5 to 1-2 ahead.

Sarsfields also started the second half in the best possible way with a goal from Kelly. Unfortunately for them Pearses responded with goals from Murphy and Connell, Sarsfields reduced the deficit with an Eric Kenny goal and points from Cathal Keane and Kelly. Bellew edged his side further ahead with a superb long range point. Full back Daniel Donoghue was redeployed in the forwards and showed his versatility with a well taken point. Substitute Sean Poland with a point and a Kevin Cooney goal kept Sarsfields hopes alive but within minutes a goal and a point from Gary Hennelly sealed the deal for Pearses.
