Afterwards in the Junior A Hurling Championship, Millstreet were defeated by Banteer on a scoreline of 1-18 to 0-12. A sharper Banteer side deserving their victory due to their ability to take their chances throughout the match. The first half was relatively even though Banteer lead by 1-9 to 0-8 at the break, but Millstreet will rue their many missed chances in the second half while their game when they still had a chance to get back into the game, while Banteer seemed to score with every chance.
