Leading from start to finish, Rochestown dominated midfield through Jack Sommers and Shane McDonald, while they also won the majority of the breaks thanks to centre-forward Kevin Hodgins and impressive wing-back David Meaney.

Rochestown grabbed an early goal when Hodgins picked up the breaking ball and ran straight through the Killorglin defence to fire home a wonderful individual goal.

As well as missing star midfielder Gary O'Sullivan, Killorglin's cause was not helped when their bus broke down en route to the game.
