Even though Dr. Crokes got off to a good start with two early points, Austin Stacks took their scores better in the first quarter.

The Austin Stacks goal was a close in effort by Calvin Foley after a good save by Tony Clifford in the Croke's goals.

However, the second half belonged to Dr. Crokes. Adam O'Shea and Mike Casey were the key players in this half as they brought their scoring tallies in the match to 1-06 and 0-05 respectively. The Dr. Crokes forwards combined well as a unit, David Shaw leading the line very well.

The platform for the attackers was laid by Paul Clarke and Kerry Minor goalkeeper Billy Courtney's dominant midfield display. Austin Stacks had many attacks but the Crokes defence led by David Naughton, Jack Lenihan and Gavin White restricted them to two second half points, leaving the home side victorious on a scoreline of 1-16 to 1-07

Best for Stacks on the night were Jack Morgan, Michael O'Donnell, Ferdia O'Brien and Calvin Foley.
