On the tenth minute Moycarkey added a further point from the side line ably taken by Tom Hayes. Brendan Donaghy kept Cahir close before Anthony McKelvey netted the ball for Moycarkey, when the free he hit lobbed over the Nicholas Reidy’s head in the net. As the quarter turned Anthony pointed another free to give Moycarkey a cushion of five points before an eighth minute period when the ball ebbed and flowed from end to end. In the twenty third minute Cahir’s Ryan Murphy pointed another free before Anthony McKelvey raised another green flag. Jack Fallon concluded Moycarkey Borris’s scoring for the first half before another two pointed frees by Ryan Murphy were added to Cahir’s. The half time score Moycarkey Borris 2-5 Cahir 0-5.

In the thirty eighth minute Anthony McKelvey got his hat trick of goals. Ryan Murphy, Cahir replied with a pointed free before Anthony found the net for his fourth goal.
