The CBS started well but faced a tough Monasterevin backline. Sean Keane came close in the opening minutes after he was played in by Elijah Emmanuel.

Thankfully, the CBS pulled one back minutes later after a tidy finish by Sean Keane to equalise.
Paddy Fitzpatrick delivered a pinpoint cross to Ben O’Connor at the backpost who unfortunately struck the woodwork. The deadlock was not broken until the dying minutes of the first half when a lovely finish by Sean Keane put the CBS up 2-1 at the break ️
George Okpara and Darren Brennan came close but it was Sean Keane who was clinical once more after Paddy Fitzpatrick played him through and he slotted it in to earn himself a hatrick making it 3-1.
