Sarsfields 2-16 Carrickcruppen 2-07
A great start saw Sarsfields hit 1-07 to without reply. The visitors pulled back a few scores but Sarsfields had a good lead at half time. Early in the second half Johnny Reynolds scored a penalty after Richie Stevenson was pulled down. Two Carrickcruppen goals put a gloss on the scoreline, but Sarsfields were much the better team.
No doubt Sarsfields will face a sterner test when the two teams meet again in the championship quarter final in a fortnight.
