The feature of the first half was the scoring performance by Eoin Monaghan who scored Garrycastle’s total of  2-4. The early stages of the first half was even but as the half went on The Downs began to get on top and it took a Garrycastle  goal just before halftime to level the game at 2-4 to 1-7. A scoring spree in the early stages of the second half by The Downs gave them a six point lead which laid the foundation for their victory. A spirited fightback by the Garrycastle lads saw them reduce the lead  to two points. However, they were unable to maintain the momentum and conceded three late points to put five points between the sides at the end.
