Naomh Eoin led by 1-7 to 0-6 at half time thanks to a neat goal from Gavin Ruschitzko three minutes before the break. Rangers came more into the game in the last period and it was a Ted Joyce point that gave them the lead for the first time turning in to the last quarter, however, they could not shake of the attention of the Naomh Eoin men and could only breathe a sigh of relief when the last Naomh Eoin shot hit the side netting. It was as close as that.
Final Score: Mt. Leinster Rangers 0-15 Naomh Eoin 1-10
