Naomh Brid/Pettigo came back with two points from on-form Oisin Brogan and Eoghan Gallagher but another Ardara point left them ahead at the break 1-6 to 1-4.
Ardara hit a purple patch in the third quarter, scoring 1-4 to Naomh Brid/Pettigo's goal from Oisin Brogan shortly after the water break, which left Ardara seven points ahead.
