Played on a miserable Sunday afternoon in the county graound.The cocks started the game brighly running up 5 points in the first 10 mins with Pats replying with 3 points during the whole first half. Cocks ahead byy 3 points at half time but in the second half the cocks came flying out of the blocks with a goal in the first 40 seconds when Liam Sheppard ran 45m and smashed the ball into the net. Pats did not fade and were the strongest team for the nextfor the next ten mins and scored a fine goal through Johnny Egg and further points from Chuck O'Connor and Jacko Kennedy. But Pats let themselves down by giving away a needless penalty which was converted by Garry Nolan. Pats came back with further points from Will Doran and Pookie Canavan but in the end it was the penalty that seperated these two sides.
Best for Pats were Jacko Kennedy, Johnny Egg & .Shane Rohan.
