The second period started as the first finished with Metals knocking the ball about confidently. It took only five minutes for Fowlmere to take the lead when a smart cross from Terry Woods was converted at the back post by Ellis.

It was all too easy for Metals now and after some lovely football Ricky Crotty ran through and tucked the ball away from a tight angle to make it 3-1.

Although the game was effectively over, Metals continued to play good football and cause problems and with five minutes remaining Stokes scored his second of the game after carrying the ball for 50 yards before playing a neat one-two with Dalton O'Brien and slotting passed the helpless keeper.
