Queen's got the chance to get off to the ideal start when they were awarded a third-minute penalty, but James Kielt saw his effort saved by Danny Devlin. Sean Leo McGoldrick then looped in a Derry goal on 10 minutes and they led 1-4 to 0-4 at the break.

Queen's did get the first score of the second half through Niall McKenna, but that was the precursor to a Derry onslaught as Peter Graham fumbled a Paddy Bradley attempt into his own net to open the floodgates.
