As the first half entered stoppage time the winners had a comfortable 1-8 to 1-4 lead but Linda Ryall cut that lead to a point with Boardsmill's second goal. Half time Kildalkey 1-8 Boardsmill 2-4
Kildalkey inspired by the Keoghs, Maire and Aine along with midfielder Lauren McMahon dominated the opening twenty minutes of the second half. Hackett pointed for Boardsmill to level the game but from there on it was all Kildalkey. McMahon hit 1-1, points from Caoimhe Bird and Aine Keogh along with their third goal courtesy of Una Leonard opened up a nine point gap. Boardsmill finished with a flourish. Half back Michaela Stellini pointed and Susie Kennedy raised a green flag to narrow the gap but time ran out for the 'Mill' girls and Kildalkey were crowned champions.
