Denis Kelly scored his sides first goal on the stoke of half time to leave a half time score of 1-7 to 2-3 in favour of the visitors. Ross came our strongly in the second half to score 1-1 after ten minutes but the over the water side them took command of the game running out winners by 2-14 to 4-4. On a day when the entire team played well, shels were well served by Fergie Parker, Vincent Parker, Craig Potter and James Murphy with Denis Kelly, Ibar Murphy, Ciaran Walsh and Willie O Shaughnessy in attack.
