Ballinteer opened the scoring with a point from Aodhan Clabby. However, Crokes then got into their stride, raising the white flag six times - and adding a goal for good measure - before Ballinteer scored again. didn't get much better for Ballinteer before half time and they ended the half 2-09 to 0-05 in arrears.

After the break Crokes maintained their momentum, adding a further 2-09, while restricting their rivals to only 3 overs, Ballinteer's cause was not helped when they were reduced to 14 men with 10 minutes to go.
