After 16 minutes, the Kingdom side – managed by Aidan O’Shea, son of Jack – were 0-6 to 0-2 in front and while Mark Cronin replied for Gabriels, Caolim Teahan’s goal, rounding off a great move, opened up a six-point lead.
Gavin O’Grady, who finished with seven points, extended that further with a wonderful score but Gabriels could have got back into the game when Eddie Goggin had a sight of goal but he shot wide.
While Seán Kelleher did get a point for the West Cork side, Glenbeigh-Glencar struck again, with O’Grady and Darran O’Sullivan combining to set up Kieran Courtney for the second goal.

Cronin’s point meant that it was 2-7 to 0-5 at half-time and Tommy Cahill and O’Grady (two) were on target in the early stages of the first half. The goal Gabriels needed to make a contest of it never looked like coming and Glenbeigh-Glencar kept the scoreboard ticking over to win by nine.

The Cork club led for almost all of this exciting encounter and had begun to pull away before Ballyduff sub Adam Carroll scored his side’s third goal at the death.
A strong finish to the first half put Mayfield in control. While two Brian Power frees had put Ballyduff 1-6 to 1-5 ahead by the 19th minute, Mayfield’s Shane Duggan netted following a scramble and five points – three from Kelly, with first goalscorer David O’Neill and Duggan also on target – were only answered by Declan Cheasty and Eoin Cummins.

That left them 2-10 to 1-8 ahead at the break and, while the second half wasn’t as high scoring, some inspired shooting from Kelly ensured that Ballyduff couldn’t claw their way back into contention.
With six minutes remaining, both sides were reduced to 14 men following a scuffle, with both dismissed players named Brian O’Leary. Jack Kennedy did give Ballyduff hope with a goal to make it 2-15 to 2-10, but two Kelly points sandwiched one from Patrick Duggan before Carroll’s late goal.
Scorers for Mayfield: Nicky Kelly 0-10 (0-6 frees), David O’Neill 1-4, Shane Duggan 1-2, Patrick Duggan, Kevin Punch 0-1 each.
Scorers for Ballyduff Lower: Brian Power 0-5 (frees), Jack Kennedy 1-1, Jack Lyons, Adam Carroll 1-0 each, Calum Lyons, Cormac Dunphy, Declan Cheasty, Eoin Cummins 0-1 each.
