The Glen continued to exert the pressure and were rewarded with 2 further points. Aghada registered a point but the Glen went on to score another goal. Mid way through the half the Aghada midfield started to dominate and stopped the supply going to the Glen forwards. Aghada registed a goal and a further 2 points. Half time score Glen rovers 2-02 to Aghada 1-03. At the start of the second half Aghada made a number of switches and were playing with the aid of a strong wind. The game flowed up and down the pitch as both teams gave their all. The aghada defence held tight with the goal keeper pulling off a number of fine saves and the full back line clearing a number of balls off the line. The Aghada forwards were getting more success at the other end and scored a further 3 goals and 4 points. On the night Aghada were stronger, however if Glen rovers had their full compliment of players the game would have been hard to call. Final score Aghada 4-07 to Glen rovers 2-03.
