Pearses started the match brilliantly with a goal after 30 seconds from Jamie Curley who reacted quickest to bat the ball to the Four Roads net after it was saved by the Four Roads keeper. Pearses lead at half time but Four Roads came out in the second half with all guns blazing. With ten minutes to go Pearses were 2 points down BUT However cometh the hour, cometh the man and this certainly could be applied to the Pearses team for the remainder of the match. The backs settled, started to dominate their opponents and started use the ball better. The midfielders and forwards upped their work rate and never stop trying for scores despite the intense pressure from the Four Roads backs. Andrew Flood was introduced at wing forward and reenergized the middle third for Pearses. Daniel Glynn got a point from play and a free before Jamie Curley ran on to a breaking ball on the Four Roads 21, soloed clear and blasted the ball to the roof of the Four Roads net giving the keeper no chance and regaining the lead for Pearses.
