Dergview...............3 Limavady United...............2

DON'T be fooled by this scoreline. This was nowhere near as close as it might seem. Nor was it a game of two halves. If United had a share in the contest, it would be about one tenth such was the gap between the sides.
Yet two goals in the last five minutes gave them a degree of respectability they were a well beaten side before half-time thanks to Ryan Campbell's hat trick.
Too often this season United have started sluggishly, and the scene was set for a bad afternoon as early as the fourth minute, when Watt gave away possession and Falconer seized his chance to cross the ball for Campbell to have an easy chance to score from inside the box with the visitors' defence all at sea.
It should have been 2-0 four minutes later, when Falconer was allowed to stroll into the box and head straight at Wells.
On 11 minutes Dergview found themselves in a three on two break and Dougherty really should have done better than to sky his effort.
