Slaughtneil's Cormac McKenna scored a goal to help them lead 1-6 to 0-1 after 15 minutes.
But two Eddie McCloskey goals helped favourites Loughgiel Shamrocks keep the deficit to just four points by the break at Celtic Park.
Shay Casey's goal levelled the game and the holders used their second-half wind advantage to good effect to pull away.
Interestingly, Slaughtneil didn't manage a score from play in the second period as Loughgiel started to dominate possession.
The Derry Champions put up a magnificent fight but were denied by the stronger side in the end.
