A fortunate opening score seen a tame Aaron Dolan shot for a point drop into the Derrylin goalkeepers hand, the ‘keeper though would somehow fumble the ball into the net for a goal. Points from Gary Maguire, Ronan Meehan (2) and Damian Holleran had Belcoo in good position despite several other wayward efforts before Damian Holleran netted his sides second goal as half time loomed.
