In the thirty first minute, Sam O’Dwyer got the first score of the second half after nice play from Waterville which he tapped it over the bar.  In the thirty fifth minute Barry O’Dwyer with a nice run finished off with punch over the bar and Stephen O’Dwyer pointed from a free kick.  Another great save by Seamus O’Shea kept Waterville up by seven points. After an eight minute break with no score, good lead up play from Waterville led to a Barry O’Dwyer point.  Francis Courtney (a free)and Padraig O’Sullivan (2) added to Beaufort’s tally.

In the fifty second minute, Kevin O’Dwyer got a lovely point, followed by Francis Courtney’s fourth point for Beaufort.  In injury time, a goal from Shane O’Sullivan Beaufort made it a three point game.  Final score Waterville 0-13 to 1-07 Beaufort.  Waterville played very well, with great performances from Seamus O’Shea, Fionan Clifford, Barry O’Dwyer and Jamie O’Sullivan.
