A brace of goals from Mikey Cole in the opening half and playing against the wind set Trim up to retain the title. The winners led at the break 2-6 to 0-8. The accurate James Murray hit five of those points from frees. At the other end the combination side relied on the accuracy of Mikey Mullan who scored six fine points.

Killyon/Longwood failed to score from play in the second half and their only return was four pointed frees from Niall Smullen. Trim had this game in the bag in the opening eight minutes with 1-1 from corner forward Brian Dowling. Midfielder Cian Lee put the icing on the cake with ten minutes remaining. After good work from Cole the midfielder crash the sliothar to the Killyon/Longwood net to put the issue beyond doubt.

After the game Trim captain Charlie Ennis was presented with the U21 hurling championship cup.
