GV jumped out to a lead at the 5 minute mark of the first half when Nick Paynter's long throw-in bounced into the 18 yard area through a tangle of players and Downingtown West keeper Josh Brian was not able to redirect over his goal.

Shortly after the restart Jack Halliday made it 2-0 for GV when he headed home a cross from Mark Williams. The 2nd half got under way but two minutes later the game officials saw lightning again and the game was concluded and GV had notched the 2-0 win.
