Having held level for the first quarter at 1-02 apiece, this chsmpionship semi-fibal in Adrigole was burst open in the second as 'Town established a foothold they would not relinquish. A slew of scores from Murphy had them 2-07 to 1-03 ahead at the break.

The scond half continued in much the same vein. Alan O' Donoghue was moved onto Murphy which stemmed the flow from that source, but Town were the better team on the day throughout the pitch and, though Urhan never gave in, it was Town who progressed to the final courtesy of a 3-14 to 1-05 scoreline.
