They met Castlehaven in a repeat of the 2012 first round. Castlehaven opened the scoring and were two points to the good before Pat O'Mahony pointed for Kilbrittain in the eight minute. Kilbrittain were playing against the gale of wind and found themselves under constant pressure. The Kilbrittain defence were in mean mood however and by the tenth minute had leveled the game via a Declan Harrington point. A long delivery for the Haven on the quarter hour mark,
decieved Kilbrittain goalie Seamus O'Brien and ended up in the net for a fortuitous goal.
Kilbrittain responded with a pointed free from impressive Noel Griffen and a lovely David Desmond point. Castlehaven added a point before Declan Harrington
pointed following a great pass by Vincent O'Brien. The halftime score read Kilbittain 0-5 Castlehaven 1-3 and Kilbrittain were in a good position after playing into the strong wind.
Again the Haven opened the scoring in the second half with a point within a minute but this was to be their last score for thirty minutes as Kilbrittain powered into the second half with scores from Pat O'Mahony, one, and Noel Griffen, two, to lead at the three quarter stage. Substitute Chris Hickey
pointed twice in as many minutes to extend the lead before a '45 deliverd by Jamie Wall was broken by Griffen to the path of O'Mahony who delivered the killer blow with a fine goal. Kilbrittain were now six points to the good with eight minutes remaining, and with Castlehaven failing to get to grips with the wind, Kilbrittain finished strongly with points from Griffen from a free and Maurice Sexton before Castlehaven had the final say with a point in injury time.
Final score Kilbrittain 1-12 Castlehaven 1-5.
This was a good win for Kilbrittain after making hard work of the same game the previous year. The wind was a factor, however Kilbrittain coped better in the first half when it seemed to be at its strongest.
