Ross were 0-6 to 0-1 up after 18 minutes thanks to points from Daragh Hayes. Patrick Hurley, Paul and Mark Hodnett. Defensively Ross were on top and there was great movement in the forwards. Glanmire responded well and for the next 10 minutes they reduced the score back to 0-7 to 0-4 before Ross took control again around the middle to go 0-9 to 0-4 in front. Then in the last minute of the first half, Paul Hodnett was taken down in the square and a well taken penalty by the outstanding Mark Hodnett brought off a great save by the Glanmire goalie to leave the half time score Carbery Rangers 0-9 Glanmire 0-4.

Glanmire kicked the first 2 points of the second half but Ross weathered the storm and took control of the game with scores coming from Ciaran Calnan, Cathal Hennessy and Diarmuid Kerr. Ross went on to win on a final score of 0-16 to 0-8. They now await to see who they play in the semi final.
