Played in O'Connor Park, Tullamore, Rosenallis were the better team throughout and were full value for their three-point win.

James Jackson and Colm Poole led the scoring stakes as Rosenallis had the upper hand throughout the 60 minutes.

They stormed the opening period and a goal from Jackson after 14 minutes had them 1-2 to 0-1 ahead.

They led 1-4 to 0-4 at the break, but it was a lightning start to the second-half that really put them in the driving seat.

Quick-fire points from Joseph Shelley, the in-form Poole and Jackson (free) gave Rosenallis a 1-7 to 0-4 lead within three minutes of the restart.

Bracknagh did stage a rally, but were unable to make up the difference despite a late Dillon Broderick goal in injury-time.
