A bright, blowy afternoon in Rasharkin,, Glenarm playing with the breeze first half, and they certainly took advantage. Inside the first minute Barry Hamill fired low to the net, a point one minute later from Hugh-Pat McNeill and a goal by Darren Hamill sixty seconds after that gave the blues a lead they never gave up. The Derry men got the next score of the game on ten mins followed soon by a wonderful point from a forty yard sideline by Blain Mcdermott. Alan Furlong lobbed a goal for Na Magha on the quarter mark, but that goal was immediately cancelled out by a crafty flick from the wiley old stick of Connor McNeill. Points from Darren Hamill, Declan, Brendan, and Blaine McDermott gave a h/t score 3-7, 1-3. Second half began brightly for the boys in green with points on one, two, and five mins closing the gap, Glenarm then out-scored their opponents over a twelve min period by eight pts to four. Goals from T. Douban 25 min, and D. Foley 28 min for the city men gave them a glimmer of hope, only to be snubbed out by a goal on 30 min Liam O`Neill. f/t 4-16, 3-10.
