Aided by a truly bizarre goal by Conor Marlowe – Sean O'Brien's attempted clearance deflecting off the full-forward and into the net – the Marist led 2-7 to 2-2 at half-time.

Marist held this lead despite having played against the wind. Marist's other goal in the first half was a poacher's strike from Michael Monaghan.

For their part, the Wicklow combination side took both of their goals brilliantly. On 11 minutes, Mikey O'Connor hit a left-foot shot into the bottom corner; and, later in the half, Garry Allen found the top corner with the pick of the eight scored on the day.

Charlie McMickan grabbed a second goal, before further goals from the excellent Brian Stack and Marlowe decorated the victory. Good Counsel, New Ross await in the semi-finals.
