In a match that was very tight in the early exchanges the Mayo man seemed to be in control midway through the first game leading 10-5 before Scollan started to show his class and went ahead 11-10. Vahey managed to get another ace to tie it at 11-11 but that was his last score as Scollan closed out the game 15-11. The second game started with Scollan having serve which he made great use of and never looked like relinquishing his lead frustrating Vahey. With some great finishing Scollan eased to victory 15-6 taking his first Connacht Title.
