Shay Doherty then joined the scoring act with a well worked score on his weaker left foot before a goal from the same man left the half time score 2-9 to 0-4 points.
The visitors were first to raise the white flag in the 2nd half with two scores from Cathal Doherty and Joe McKinney. Hunter added to his first half tally with a good strike from the right. This was followed by two McBrearty scores, one from a free. Hunter then struck again, closely followed by a point from substitute Gerard Gibbons.
