A goal from Supply Chain & Logistics student Darren Reilly forced extra time. DIT then prevailed to claim the coveted title with a point from Construction Economics student David Givney. This is DIT's second Division 1 League title ever at this level, their first coming only two years ago in 2010. En route to this year's final DIT defeated Maynooth, DCU, UCD, Athlone IT and Queens.
