Despite playing against a tricky wind a miserly defensive performance saw Moylagh keep a clean sheet in the first half of the game. 2 points each from Tommy O'Reilly, Niall McAlarney and Willie McGrath saw the teams go in at the break at Moylagh 0-06 to Boardsmill 0-0.

Two points in succession from Boardsmill gave them some hope of getting back into the game. However Moylagh steadied the ship once again and in spite of a black card to impressive young full back Nathan Doyle they closed out the game well with good points from Maurice Quinn, Willie McGrath and captain Paddy Grall. The final score in the game was Moylagh 0-12 Boardsmill 0-02.
Best for Moylagh in solid team performance were Paddy Grall in defence, Tommy O'Reilly in midfield, Sean Martin & top scorer Willie McGrath in attack.
