Caltra cuans got of to a flying start against a strong athletic well managed Salthill team. Salthill in the first quarter lead with three well taken points when Caltra Cuans nipped  at the heals and lead by the narrowest of margins at half time as the rain poured down again Caltra Cuans started the second half at great pace but the stronger Salthill soon took the lead with two goals within five minutes of each other ,from there on it was Salthill all the way, even though Caltra Cuans showed great heart and could not over come a much stronger team.  And  this marked the end of the league.
