In the second game away to Atticall on Easter Sunday the game was nip and tuck throughout, only for the Mourne side to score two sucker punch goals that proved the difference on the day.

Second half-substitute Jamie Cusack scored 0-4 from play while his cousin Ronan Crangle popped up from the half-back line to score the winner. While Harry Og Walsh could have sealed the victory with a pile driver from 20 yards which the keeper pushed on the crossbar.
