Match Report:

With a very strong wind behind them in the first half Armoy dominated from the start and had 3 points on the board before Carey added their first point approaching 7 minutes. Approaching 18 minutes Armoy found the back of the net to give themselves a 5 point lead. The home team added a succession of points to the board and hit the back of the net once again to take an eleven point cushion going into the break.

Half time score: Armoy 2.8 Carey 0.3

The second half proved to be a very entertaining game of hurling. Despite a large deficit at half time Carey weren't going to relinquish the cup that easily and with the wind now behind them it was the visitors turn to add a succession of scores with no reply. Armoy's first score of the second half came after 11 and a half minutes and by this stage Carey had added a goal and 5 points to the board leaving just a goal between the sides. This point by Armoy, which increased the gap to 4 again seemed to settle the home side a little and although Carey added 2 more points to reduce the deficit to 2, Armoy hit the back of the net once again and also tagged on another point to give themselves a little breathing space with a 6 point lead. The sides then exchanged a point each before Carey added another point and then hit the back of the net with a free from 45m to reduce the gap to 2 once again. Armoy fought back and and with just minutes left on the clock they hit over 2 more points and hit the top corner of the net with a brilliantly taken goal. Carey added one more consolation point but the brilliant comeback just fell short and Armoy took the cup from the holders with a 2 goal win.

Final score: Armoy 4.13 Carey 2.13
