Some excellent interplay and stout defending has us on the front foot throughout and our dominance was copper fastened by a goal from David Sheppard to leave us in total control at the break 1-15 to 0-1
The second half was continued where we left off with some excellent play and great discipline shown.
Further goals from David Breen, Shane Dowling with 2 one of which came from a 20 meter free, David Sheppard with 2 and Kevin Downes gave us a comfortable win.
We played well and had good displays from James O Brien, Mike Casey, Tommy Grimes, David Breen, Alan Dempsey and David Sheppard.
