Played in atrocious conditions the game was of a very high standard.
Grange dominated the first half creating a number of chances before Kevin Ferrigan found the back of the net.
The second half saw a big improvement from Windmill who in the early stages caused problems for Grange, but as the action drew to a close Grange gained total control and finally killed the game off with a long range effort from Jordan Melvin.
Grange player manager Neal Jackson led by example and was awarded Man of the Match.
