The Carmichael Street side would grab a consolation goal in the 61st minute as Nathaniel King netted compliments of a penalty kick conversion.

Lodge Secondary would seal the win as Smith completed his double with a powerful header into the roof of the right corner, after collecting a perfectly placed left-sided cross from just outside the right post.

The win would be sealed in the 69th minute as Lenroy Forde slotted home his right-footed effort into the back of the net from the right side of the 18-yard box, after being in a one-on-one situation with the Charlestown keeper.
