The St Malachy’s lads had threatened to break clear of Pomeroy in the opening half but the Plunketts dug in and hit four first half goals to remain very much in the contest at the short whistle. Edendork opened the scoring in the opening minute with a Eamonn Jordan point from a free. Pomeroy though were three clear within a minute. First Odhran Barrett landed a free followed by an a goal from Aidan Kennedy after a fine block on goalkeeper Patrick Harvey as he attempted to clear his lines.
Edendork bounced back quickly again as Ronan Daly hit a point followed by Finn O’Connor goal. Midfielder and brother Logan O’Connor put Edendork ahead in the 6th minute and by the 12th minute the lead was up to five following a point from Eamon Jordan and another goal from Finn O’Connor. Pomeroy owned the next four to five minutes of possession and capitalised on a couple of errors to hit Edendork for two goals from the boot of Aidan Kennedy and Odhran Barrett. Barrett also produced a 4th goal of the half two minutes from the break. A pile driver of a shot hitting the Edendork net. Logan ad Finn O’Connor got points late on to leave the half time score Edendork 2-7 Pomeroy 4-3.
Edendork powered into the second half with loads of energy. Defensively they got on top as Senan McMullan, Eoghain McGeary, Tommy Donnelly and Charlie Coney got to grips with the game. A nice point from Eamonn Jordan was followed by goals from Finn and Logan O’Connor. Pomeroy did respond with three points through Mickey Nugent, Padraig Murphy and Odhran Barrett but the goal opportunities dried up for them.
As the game entered the final quarter Edendork began to control the game and further points from the O’Connor brothers before an Aaron Devlin goal sealed the deal. Pomeroy did manage to score another goal following a well worked move from a free kick but Edendork had the final say as man of the match Finn O’Connor clipped over another point.
