The combination side reduced the gap to 4 with a free on the 15th minute and a further point a minute later left just the goal between the sides.

The Pats midfield due of Grace Treanor and Aine Breen did brilliantly throughout and it was Grace who got the next score, after a shot from distance dropped in under the posts to give the Pats a strong 6 point lead. Nicola Connor added a further point for the Pats before the combination side responded with a point from a free to leave 6 between the sides with 8 minutes left to play in the half.
