There was no denying but that Churchill were full value for their 12 point win as they were always on top of their game and when it came to the scoring department they seemed to always find the range. On the other hand even though Asdee did try hard they were always playing catch-up and once again when they did win possession in attack they failed dismally to convert.
Churchill got off to the perfect start and inside the opening minute centre forward Mikie Brennan found the net; points followed through Ciaran Crowley, J J Prior, Michael O Brien and a 45 from goalkeeper Eoghan O Brien before the home side opened their account with a free from Darragh Keane in the 17th minute.
