- The under 19’s played against Lisburn Distillery on Friday night, after an intense start Downpatrick settled into the game and had the majority of the possession with Adam Jervis and Corey McCoubrey dominating the midfield. After 25 minutes Dara McDonald broke down the left wing and cut inside and fired his shot into the bottom right corner to give his side a deserved lead. Just before halftime Downpatrick were caught out by a poor offside decision and Distillery levelled. With Drew Barnes setting up attack after attack it was only a matter of time before Downpatrick took the lead again, which they did through Barnes as he played a one two with Joe Healy and then Barnes fired home. In the last minute Downpatrick conceded a penalty which the Distillery striker scored to level the game at 2-2.
