The opening ten minutes of the second half changed the game in Garrymore’s favour, 1-3 without reply put them in a commanding lead playing with a strong breeze. Kilmaine did reply with a goal of their own moments later but struggled to get into scoring positions to build on the goal and relied heavily on frees.
