This Cup fixture began with Holycross on the attack in the first few minutes resulting in the Rearcross keeper Brian Hammersley being alert to avert the danger. Holycross were piling on the pressure which resulted in them scoring from a corner which was headed to the net. Rearcross slowly came into the game with Gavin Denihan shooting wide from distance. Brian Hammersley was again called into action for Rearcross making a fine save to keep it at 1 nil. On the 28th minute a long clearance from Rearcross was headed on by Donny O'Brien for Oisin Kelly to run onto and finish to the net to make it one all. A few minutes later Gavin Denihan set up Aiden Bryan whose shot was saved. Holycross were again denied by the Rearcross keeper to leave the 1st half finishing one all.
The second half saw Rearcross being quicker off the mark with good work from Cillian Kennedy set up Aidan Bryan whose shot went wide. However, it was Holycross who went ahead with a superb overhead shot from an out swinging corner. They made it 3-1 5 mins later. The Rearcross keeper was busy having to make a couple of good saves to keep the home side in the game. Rearcross chances were few, but Mark Hogan make a good break with his resulting shot going over. The home side battled on, but the game finished 3-1 to the away side. Brian Hammersley, Mark Hogan, Willie Mackey and Paul Ryan being the best for the home side on the night.
