An Riocht got off to a good start and were five nil up before the visitors troubled the score board. An Riocht prevented Eire Og getting into the game when Reece Flanagan scored two well taken goals in quick succession and we added a third when an Eoin Sloan 45 went all the way to the net.

Eire Og never gave up and scored three points in a row but An Riocht finished strongly with points apiece from Caomhan Campbell and Cormac Clarke.
