Aileach started brightly and after 5 mins Stephen McKendry had a snap shot from 20 yds fly a yard wide. On 20 mins
Dermot Doherty raced clear and was unfortunate to see his lobbed effort clip the bar on the way over. On the half hour the same player just failed to get a finishing touch to a Gavin Doherty right wing cross.
The second half followed a similar pattern until substitute Darren McMonagle fired in a 30 yd free kick which Pauric O’Donnell did well to get a hand to pushing it onto the bar but the ball dropped behind the line for the lead goal.
Culdaff responded well and from a right wing corner the which caused confusion in the Aileach defence the ball clipped McGeedy’s right hand post before being cleared to safety. With Culdaff pressing for an equaliser there was always going to be gaps at the back and with 15 mins left Anthony Doherty raced cleat before rounding O’Donnell
and tapping home. With time running out Anthony Doherty ran on to Caomhin McFeely’s pass and finished well across O’Donnell to the bottom corner to seal the win.
