Col Eanna 3-12
Cistercian Col, Roscrea 2-8
The Dubs were trailing by two points at half-time, but they turned the tide in the second half by outscoring their opponents 2-6 to 1-4.
But the second half failed to live up to expectations, with the goals from Breen and McDonagh proving vital, with Finbar Furey and Cillian Moffat tagging on late insurance scores.
