Ciaran O'Connor replied with a point for Bally before Kieran Long got on the end of a well worked move to rifle
 to the net for Knocknagoshel. Knock were well on top at this stage but failed to capitalise on chances and allowed Bally back in to the game with a goal from Stephen Carmody. Joe McCarthy added a point before Edmund Walsh took back the initiative for Knock with two fine points from play. Bally had three points in a row from play to keep them in touch before half time. Half time score was 2-6 to 1-7 in favour of the home side.
