Score: 4 - 6
Two goals from Brian Faulkner and one from Lar Ivers gave Trim Celtic a comfortable halftime lead. When Dean Courtney made it 4-0 early in the second half the tie looked over however Swords had different ideas and scored three unanswered goals. Substitute Derek Donohoe scored to stem the flow before Brian Faulkner completed his second consecutive hat-trick. There was still time for Swords to score a fourth before the final whistle.
