Kevin Lynch's raced into a two-point lead inside two minutes through Kieran and Kevin Hinphey. Aidan Delargy pointed a Cushendall free but immediately Geoffrey McGonigle hit back with two pointed frees for the Dungiven side.

The tables turned in Cushendall's favour in the 19th minute when Emmett McNaughton raced in for a goal, to which the Antrim champions added four unanswered points to lead by 1-6 to 0-5 at the break.

It was all Cushendall in the second half, and though Kevin Lynch's managed a goal from Geoffrey McGonigle two minutes from time, the score flattered the Derry champions.
