The hosts were always on top in this encounter and a goal from Paul Callan helped them record their first win of the Division 3A season.
The first half saw the Dunleer men establish a firm grip on the game as points from Colin Murphy (4) and Callan (3) saw them build up a 0-9 to 0-3 lead going into the interval.
