A hat trick of goals in the 3rd quarter for home side Skryne settled the issue in this 2nd Round B League game, in which the home side led by 0 08 to 0 04 at half time. Skryne had played with the help of the breeze in the opening period and were well worth the halftime lead. Tones had struggled to contain a very fast moving Skryne side and would rue a missed goal chance early in the game when the Skryne keeper pulled off a brilliant save to deny Rioghan Mac Ghinneartaí from close range. Mark Coleman, Thomas Blaney, Caolán Ward (free) and Conor Sheppard accounted for the Tones first half scores.
Tones began the 2nd half with 3 changes in personnel Alan Callaghan, Rossa Mc Donnell and Cillian O Brien replaced Davy O Neill, Oisín Mac Ghinneartaí and Gary Mc Fadden however it was Skryne who dominated the opening exchanges and that early salvo of goals left Tones with too much to do. Tones added 2 further points, a free from Caolán Ward and a fine point from substitute Iarlaith O Kelly Lynch shortly after his introduction. Tones worked hard to narrow the gap but the Skryne defence held firm and they had the points wrapped up well before the finish.
This was a night to forget for the Tones but they were well served by Aonghus Mc Loughlin, Luke Condie who made a fine save in the 2nd half, Robert White who cleared his lines effectively on numerous occasions and Éanna O Kelly Lynch who made a welcome return from injury.
