The young O’Rahilly’s got off to a flying start with Lawrence McKeown kicking two fine points before Dara Flanagan found the net after his initial shot hit the post. During this first period Belcoo were controlling matters and winning their individuals battles, Oran McCann would add a point before St. Pat’s got off the mark through Patrick Treacy to leave it 1-3 to 0-1 at the end of the first quarter.

In Quarter 2 St. Pat’s completely dominated for 10minutes and racked up 1-6 without reply. Eimhinn Curran was at the heart of all Pat’s good work, contributing heavily to the scoring. Belcoo though managed to break free from the defensive end and would register two late goals from Oran McCann and Josh Killilea to leave it level at half time. 3-3 (9) to 1-7 (9).

It was Quarter 3 where Belcoo took control of the tie and gained a five point advantage holding their opponents to just one score. Oran McCann would cooly finish when through one on one before Dara Flanagan netted for a second time. McCann would fist two good points while Lawrence McKeown tapped over a free kick for 5-6 (16) to 2-7 (11).

In the final quarter the hosts held the visitors scoreless. Jamie Ray in the Belcoo goals made two great stops, deflecting balls away for 45’s which came to nothing as a resilient home defence thwarted the St. Pat’s attack. It wasn’t until the final 5minutes that Belcoo got a score themselves. Oisin O’Loughlin’s lofted free from the sideline punched to the net by McKeown. The O’Rahilly’s would finish the game the stronger and Oran McCann pundered another goal from close range at the death.
