Hawks with Terry Kennedy and Martin scoring give them a 12-3 lead after five minutes. Ballina Colts fought back with three pointers from Colm Leonard and Padraic Roche to lead 19-14 after the first quarter . In the second quarter the Colts increased their lead with exciting fast break baskets and good outside shooting to leave the scores 36-29 at the break .

In the third quarter the hawks cut the lead to two points with good man to man defence , but David Melia hit a big three pointer at the end of the quarter to restore the Colts lead to five points 47-42. In the final quarter the Colts took complete control out scoring the Hawks 27-13, Colts superior fitness was evident with Brain OMalley and Martin Wynne scoring great scores on the break .
