It was a scrapy first half with the Bhoys playing the better football, against a hard working Doxa side who were desperate for points, it was Guirassy who gave Lansdowne the lead on 25 minutes when good work by Oakley and zargas allowed the space for Guirassy to run onto and shoot low into the bottom left corner.
Lansdowne kept pressing for goals and McCann and Holzer both had shots saved by the keeper while both Purcell and Oakley had chances at the front post from driven crosses, Doxa then had a good 10 minute spell were they forced Bhoys goalie Kabo into 2 good saves bit a third shot hit with venom from 25 yards slipped into the bottom left corner, one each at the break.
The second half was a similar affair with the Bhoys having the bulk of possession but Doxa never gave up trying to catch Lansdowne on the counter.
