But it was Knockbeg that started the game much the better,  controlling possession and playing much of the game in the Athy half.The travelling Knockbeg support brought plenty of noise and energy, which seemed to affect Athy’s confidence. But for all their dominance, the visitors could not take full advantage and led by the slenderest of margins at have time. All to play for in the second half.Athy made two half-time substitutions which added a real spark to their performance in the second half.
