A goal from Walterstown’s Cormac Madden reduced Nobber’s lead and as they regained composure Cormac grabbed a second goal in the first half and Walterstown had reduced Nobber’s lead to three points at the break.
After the Walterstown had the slight upper but for every converted point Nobber seemed to be able to respond.
