This was quickly followed by a fine goal from Brian Cantwell on 10 minutes and he added a point one minute later. Bective lost Michael Lyness to injury and he was replaced by Ciaran Mc Connell. Dunsany pointed but Mulhall shot home a penalty on 13 minutes and added 2 points from frees. Mark O'Brien chipped in with a point on 17 minutes and followed this up with a third goal on 24 minutes. Dunsany finish the scoring with a point on 31 minutes to leave the half time score at: Bective 3-6, Dunsany 0-3.
The second half began with Bective, now playing into the wind, contined building their lead with a point from Mulhall. Dunsany reply with a pointed free on 2 minutes, and again on 8 minutes. Still Bective dominated the exchanges and added points from Colin O'Rourke, Mark O'Brien and a point from play and a free kick from Paul McCabe. Dunsany complete their tally with 2 pointed frees.
This was a strong display from Bective and they now have 6 points out of 3 games.
