McGrath opened the scoring inside five minutes and DIT added two points before DCU got their first score from Mark Aylward.

The long-ball system didn't quite work for DIT, despite playing with the wind, as DCU's full-back Robert Lennon was dominant. However, when Liam Og McGovern added a point DIT still went in at the break with a three-point lead.

The second half was greeted by a snow shower, yet despite playing against the wind, DIT pointed through Kieran Bergin. Cillian Egan kept DCU's hopes alive, but DIT held on, McGrath and McGovern sealing the win.

Scorers – DIT: S McGrath 0-5fs, L Og McGovern 0-3, T Connolly 0-2, K Bergin 0-1. DCU: P Breheny, R Hogan 0-2 each, C Egan, M Aylward, C Curren 0-1 each.
