With the wind the home side started the better and on 10 minutes Conor Doherty rounded keeper Graham Doherty but saw his effort cleared off the line by Martin Donaghey. They broke the deadlock on 19 minutes when Dayton Cooke found Doherty with a superb cross field pass and he rounded a defender before firing to the top corner from twenty yards. Both Cooke and Doherty then combined for the latter to drive a low ball across the area where Dermot Doherty slid in to slot home and make it two nil. Illies responded and Donaghey had a header saved by Fergal Bradley after a corner before Joe McDaid connected with Jason Campbell’s cross but Bradley gathered superbly on the line. On the stroke of half time Carn made it three nil after Lee Mclaughlin broke and won a corner on the left and when the Illies defence failed to clear Cade Cooke fired home . Illies pressed hard on the restart and early corners saw both Donaghey and McDaid head narrowly over. Carn replied and when substitute Joseph Diver released  Cade Cooke his effort was blocked by the legs of Doherty. Illies hit back and reduced the deficit when Bradley in the home goal parried a Donaghey free but the ball fell nicely for Jason Campbell to head home. The home side were out of luck then after Robert McCartney found Dylan Cooke but his wee hit effort crashed off the bar. Illies then scored again to make it three two when Donaghey pounced on an underhit back pass to poke the ball past the advancing Bradley on 84 minutes. Illies threw everything forward at this stage but were caught on the break in the final minute when great footwork by Conor Doherty saw him release Dylan Cooke who rounded two defenders before slotting low past Doherty and seal the points.
