Down's senior side got off to a winning start in the first Senior Two game of 2015 at Malone Park.
Thankfully a heavy sleet shower blew over just before the game got underway last Saturday, with the locals grateful for all three points. But their finishing needs to improve dramatically.
The locals squandered a number of gilt-edged chances in front of goal over the 70 minutes and should have won by an even bigger margin.
Nine man Down seconds were just seconds away from pulling off a remarkable victory in this Junior 6 game at Shawsbridge.
No one gave the locals a chance and while two men short you wouldn't have noticed it on the pitch, with young guns Jordan Aidey and Jordan Wade star performers in the middle of the park.
The visitors had the temerity to take the lead in the 15th minute. Jordan Wade raced along the wing and crossed for Aaron Ferris to poke the ball home.
