In an entertaining game Aileach started the better and went ahead on 2 minutes when a low cross from the left by Dermot Doherty found Anthony Doherty to side foot home from close range. At the other end Ronan Doherty had an effort well saved by John Roulstone but on 7 minutes  Anthony Doherty fired home his second of the game after a scramble in the area. Dermot Doherty then intercepted a back pass and rounded O’Doherty but from a tight angle fired into the side netting. Greencastle rallied with Ronan Doherty seeing a shot saved, Matthew Henry firing over, Doherty denied by a Conor Bradley tackle before Mark Henry advanced and fed Michael  Henry but he blazed over. On 38 minutes Michael Barr played a neat one two with Shaun Doherty before being upended in the area allowing Ronan Doherty to calmly slot home the spot kick.  Aileach hit back and Gavin Doherty had an effort well saved  while before the break Gavin Harkin found Joe Doherty but the striker was unable to hit the target. Aileach began the second period smartly with both Dermot Doherty and Stephen McKendrie seeing efforts well saved by O’Doherty. But the home side equalised on 55 minutes when a Matthew Henry low cross was poked home by Joe Doherty. They continued to press with Shaun Doherty and Mark Henry firing over but were dealt a severe blow on 79 minutes after Shaun Doherty was red carded for a second caution. Aileach exerted full retribution from the free when O’Doherty punched clear but only as far as Dermot Doherty who slotted home first time. Greencastle poured forward and when substitute Chris Hegarty was tripped inside the area Ronan Doherty converted his second penalty of the game to make it three all. But the home side were caught pouring forward and paid the price when Gavin Doherty curled a superb effort in off the underside of the bar from fifteen yards to secure the points.
