A good pass from Tom McGillicuddy picked out Luke O'Mahony but his shot on goal was deflected for a 45. Lovely skill by Tom Walsh opened up the defence and set up Stephen Murphy for a point. Valley Rovers had a good spell but great defending by Bobby O'Halloran and Culann Harrington kept Inniscarra ahead, but Valleys did score a goal and a point before Inniscarra got the ball upfield through Ciaran Lyons and Stephen Kelleher onto Jack Browne whose pass reached Jack Murphy and he picked out Stephen Murphy with a lovely pass and he finished the ball to the net.
