In the second half Ballymac came out with a new found strength and immediately dominated the game from the start with Paudi McCarthy scoring two outstanding points within a minute of each other and Vinnie Horan following suit adding another point to secure Ballymacs lead, Luke Sweeney came from the midfield and with great skill to put two more successive points on the board, There was no stopping Vinne Horan in the closing 15 minutes of the game as he battled through the Brosna side by scoring 3 more points without response . With Genie Griffen and Paudi McCarthy adding more scores to the Ballymac side in the closing stages of the game there was no doubt Ballymac were bringing home the promotion, leaving the home side trail 10 points behind at the final whistle.
