Knocknagree 1-13    Lyre 0-10
As the ball was thrown in, Knocknagree made their intentions clear with a long range goal to start things off. They had all the ball and they added two more points to the scoreboard before Lyre opened their account with Timmie Murphy slotting one over. Knocknagree had all the possession, they were 1-4 up before Lyre got their second. Even with all the possession Knocknagree had, they couldn’t put much daylight between Lyre. Scores from Damien and Martin Kearney and Kevin Tarrant meant that early goal was the only thing standing between the two teams going in at half time.
