Cork led 0-7 to 0-3 at the break and extended their lead to 0-11 v 0-4 early in the second half.
A Galway goal by Aidan Halloran gave Donal O’Fatharthas side some hope as they cut the gap to 3 points but a Cork goal from a penalty with 13 minutes to go proved decisive. Cork extended their lead to 9 points before Galway kicked the last 3 points to see the final scoreline: Cork 1-15 Galway 1-9.
