Oranmore Maree 2-11 Mágh Cuilinn 1-05

Mágh Cuilinn, despite having an equal share of general play, were unable to match the scoring power of the group stage winners, Oranmore-Maree and particularly their scorer in chief Reuben Davitt. Oran' raced into an early 4 points to one lead before Mágh Cuilinn gained a foothold in the game. The sides traded scores until halftime with Mágh Cuilinn's final point a classy effort following an series of struck passes between Eamonn Enright, Paul Kearns and Liam Seoige with Seoige providing the finishing strike. The 0-06 to 0-03 point halftime scoreline looked not insurmountable but as in the first half, OranMaree started the half with an instant 1-1 to probably wrap up the contest. Mágh Cuilinn did get two points and but for two great saves might have had more. A second goal stretched the lead to 9 points and a mountain but Mágh Cuilinn did finally break through and for a few minutes at 2-08 to 1-05 and Mágh Cuilinn putting on the pressure it felt like another major might put the game back in the balance. However, a free gave Oranmore Maree the next point and too much to be overcome. Feeling like winners in their legs Oranmore Maree added two more points and might have had another goal but for a full stretch save by Jack Molloy keeping the ball out of the top of the net. The lads have given great value both in the Féile and the Championship and deserve much thanks for the pride they have given Mágh Cuilinn's loyal supporters.
