St Sylvester’s 2-11 Edenderry 1-9
Edenderry looked the more likely winners for the majority of the first half until Sylvester’s rapid brace. In the 27th minute an unfortunate own goal from Conleth Carey and an emphatic finish from Fergus Rooney just seconds later sent Syls on their way.
A further point courtesy of Ormonde gave the Dublin club a 2-5 to 1-4 advantage at the break. There would be no let-up in the second period either with Ormonde hardly letting a free go to waste.
