Both teams started well; chances created at both ends. A stunning 30 yard strike from Richard Allen opened the scoring. A searching cross from Matt Glover was unfortunately headed into is own goal by the Darkhouse defender to make it 2-0. Some last ditch Solihull defending keeping this score at half time. But with the first move of the second half the Darkhouse winger got to a midfield pass to the corner of the penalty box before the Solihull keeper and guided the ball into a empty net. Mark Hadden restored the 2 goal cushion with a fine strike from the edge of the penalty box after a fine run and pass from Paul Mahon. Darkhouse made it 3-2 with an identical goal to their first. A fine Richard Allen cross was swept in at the far post by Paul Mahon to make it 4-2. With time running out Darkhouse made it 4-3 to leave a nervy last 10 minutes for Renewal.
