They defeated Inbhear Sceine Gaels in a repeat of the Senior B Championship decider on a final score line of Scartaglin 2-09 Inbhear Sceine Gaels 2-06.

Scartaglin got off to a great start with a goal from Eileen O’Connor after 3 mins and points from Elaine O’Connor and Aisling O’Connell. Inbhear Sceine Gaels (ISG) missed a few opportunities and it took 20 mins before Michelle O’Sullivan opened their account with 2 goals in 5 mins. ISG finished the half strong with 2 points by Michelle O Sullivan and Caroline O’Sullivan to leave the half time score ISG 2-02 Scartaglin 1-02. Caroline O’Sullivan scored a brace of points early in the second half for ISG and Scartaglin replied through Mary Herlihy and Denise Dunlea. Scartaglin were awarded a penalty 15 mins into the second half when Marie Dineen was fouled in the square. Joanne Brosnan finished the ball into the back of ISG net from the penalty spot to leave 1pt between the sides. Further points from Eileen O’Connor and Amy Dunlea put Scartaglin ahead. Laura O’Sullivan scored for ISG to leave the team’s level with 8 mins remaining with the result now hanging in the balance.  However Scartaglin finished the game stronger with points from Joanne Brosnan and 2 from Amy Dunlea to leave the final score Scartaglin 2-09 ISG 2-06. It was a greatly contested game until the very end & it was played in ideal conditions for month of November with much credit to Cordal GAA for the quality of the playing surface.
