This game started off as a close encounter, with Banagher opening up an
early lead before Desertmartin pulled it back to 0-05 each mid way
through the first half.
Then, against the run of play Banagher scored
the first goal of the game, then followed it up with another point
before Desertmartin pulled another point back to make it 1-06 to 0-06
at the half way point in the game.
The second half saw Desertmartin
come out of the blocks with an early point from Kevin Gormley to peg
back Banaghers laed to just 2 points. However the following 15 minutes
saw Banagher capitalise on some nervy defending and passing from
Desertmartin, opening up a 1-12 to 0-07 lead.
A Ruairi Murray goal 10
minutes from time gave the Martin's some hope but with the final two
points shared between the two teams Banagher ran out with a 1-13 to
