The students put up a real fight in the first half and Conor Donegan's strike left them just two points behind at the break, 1-13 to 2-8.

However, three unanswered Paddy Henry scores allowed Derry to pull away from Trinity early in the second half, and Diarmuid Shields' goal made it a comfortable finish for the visitors.
