There wasn’t a lot between the sides in the opening half, with Jeff Lawless scoring some good points from placed balls, ensuring Ferrybank led by 0-09 to 0-05 at the break.
Ferrybank kept the scoreboard ticking over in the second-half, taking their scores with Jeff, and James Murphy doing the damage with three points each, and Jamie Diggins chipping in with a vital score, leaving seven between the sides entering the closing stages.
