The teams traded scores over the early part of the game and the sides were level at 3 points each after eight minutes. However driven on by midfielder John Garvey the home side began to assert themselves on proceedings and a goal each by Gerard Smith and Mark Larkin in the 14th and 15th minute set Na Piarsaigh up for an interval lead of 2-9 to 0-5.

A goal from Larkin and three points within the first four minutes of the second half killed of the Malachis challenge and Na Piarsaigh finished off the current season with a victory.
