Pearse got off to a great start going one up after 23mins when Edwards superbly volleyed home from outside the penalty area after a shot was blocked. Ide got back into the game with a penalty scored by Jack Reilly in the 32nd minute after good observation by the officials.

Pearse had a chance to go ahead just before the break but Neill Heffernan’s penalty crashed off the crossbar.

A tight second could have gone either way but Edwards got on the end of a great Shane Jenkinson pass to chip Jason Farrell in the Ide goal.
