The game was an extremely tight affair where space was at a premium with both defences on top. Playing with the wind Buncrana were up 0-4 to 0-1 at half time.

The home side got off to a blistering start and chalked up 4 unanswered points in the opening ten minute period. The return of county player Ryan Bradley to club action was a great boost to Buncrana. Bradley and Odhran Doherty dominated midfield in the first half, their attacking runs and accurate passing setting up scores for impressive young inside forwards Ryan Curran, Kevin Treacy and experienced full forward Paul McGonigle. Further scores were added for Buncrana by Oisin Doherty, Odhran Doherty and Ryan Curran before Downings found the net shortly before half-time to narrow the deficit to 6 points.Downings opened the second half brightly registering a point with their first attack. However, Buncrana responded with the accurate shooting of Ryan Bradley, Odhran Doherty and Oisin Doherty. A long hopeful ball into the Downings full forward line created confusion in the home defence and resulted in a second goal, leaving 4 points between the sides. There was further worry for Buncrana after Downings were awarded a penalty with 5 minutes remaining, which they converted. With the minimum between the sides Buncrana managed to hold on to collect the 2 points and will be happy with the overall performance, with scores coming from 7 different players.
