first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionLifford Celtic 1 Kildrum Tigers 3Kildrum ensured their position in the Premier League with a hard fought win in the Greenbrae. They hit the front on the half hour mark when Oran Higgins curled his right footed shot into the top corner from 20 yards. Kildrum could have doubled their advantage on numerous occasions on the lead up to half time only for Shaun Mc Brearty to keep Lifford in the game. Straight from the restart Damien Crossan put Kildrum further ahead as he headed home a Shane Brown cross from the right wing. Lifford gradually crept back into the game and got their rewards when Ross Porter scored on the hour mark. Lifford continued to press and almost got an equaliser following good efforts from David Gethins and Porter. Reece Laird sealed the game for Kildrum on the 85th minute following a counter attack and calmly finished. Old Orchard Saturday Division OneErne Wanderers 3 Donegal Town Reserves 1Erne Wanderers hosted local rivals Donegal Town on Wednesday evening at the Lakeside Centre and came out on top in a fiercely contested battle. The host’s got off to the perfect start when Mark Dorrian was fouled out on the left wing and Barry Mulligan swung over a peach of a cross to the back post where Diarmuid Slevin ghosted in to head home. Donegal fought like tigers and were making life difficult for Erne without really causing any problems for Peter Boyle in nets. Erne got a second on thirty one minutes when David Dorrian put in a cross from the right and Sticky Ward headed home to give the home side some breathing space. Donegal got a lifeline on the hour mark when Joe Laverty hit a cross come shot across the box and it deflected to Ted Bustard who scrambled home from two yards out. Donegal had their tails up now and were snapping away at Erne but the host’s are made of strong stuff these days and regrouped and found a third on seventy minutes when Mulligan burst through and when the keeper saved he then found Ward with a pin point cross and he nodded in his second of the game. Erne held out quite comfortably in the end for three precious points. Best for Erne were Ward, Dorrian and Slevin, Joe Laverty for Donegal. Referee: John Coyle.Castlefin Celtic Reserves 6 Fintown Harps 1Castlefin ran out convincing winners on Wednesday evening over Fintown. The hosts started the brighter and took the lead through JP Malley. Fintown responded immediately and equalised through Liam Mc Devitt. Malley again gave Castlefin the lead when he tapped home a cross from the right on the stroke of half time. The second half continued with the home side dominating throughout with goals from Brian Dooher, a Matthew O’Rourke brace and Malley completed his hat trick. Referee: Michael MulhernOld Orchard Saturday Division OneOrchard F.C. 3 Arranmore United 1 Orchard picked up the three points following a tough battle with a determined and youthful Arranmore side. The Islanders started brightly and took a deserved lead through Chris Mc Glanaghey who capitalised on a misdirected clearance to score from close range. Orchard began to settle into the game and should have equalised when Niall Bonner crossed for Ciaran Gibson at the back post but he headed over the bar. Gibson atoned for his earlier miss when in an almost identical situation he made no mistake to head home at the back post with Charlie Creevy providing the assist. The second half was end to end stuff with both sides coming close. Arranmore were unlucky not to take the lead when the striker had his shot brilliantly knocked on to the outside of the post by keeper Tommy Mc Laughlin. Orchard took the lead with 20 minutes to go when Bonner scored a twenty five yard shot to the top corner. With Orchard now 2-1 up, Arranmore pushed men forward to find the equaliser but the Orchard defence held firm. As Arranmore were now throwing caution to the wind it was ultimately their downfall as they were leaving themselves short at the back. Orchard extended their lead when Bonner’s shot from the edge of the box was spilled by the Arranmore keeper into the path of the inrushing Gibson who made no mistake from five yards. Barney Mc Menamin came agonizingly close to scoring a wonder goal when Bonner’s deep cross found him in space, he met the ball with a fantastic volley which came back of the underside of the crossbar. Final score Orchard 3 Arranmore 1. Two good battling team performances from both sides.St. Catherines Reserves 5 Castlefin Celtic Reserves 0St Catherine’s started brightest and had Castlefin under pressure from the kick off. Caolan Beirne opened the scoring for the Saints after five minutes with a finish from close range. Stephen Muirhead found the net on twenty three minutes with a tap in from a Brian Smith flick on and Brandon McGinley added another goal on the stroke of half time. The second half started with the Saints picking up from where they left off in the first half and putting Castlefin under pressure. Andrew Mc Morrow got on the score sheet after sixty seven minutes and added another on seventy eight minutes. Referee: Barry HunterErne Wanderers 5 Glencar Celtic 1 Erne Wanderers hosted Glencar Celtic at the Lakeside Centre on Saturday in very windy conditions. With Glencar winning the toss and opting to play with the wind it was backs to wall stuff for Erne for most of the first half. A great rearguard performance limited Celtic to only a few half chances without troubling Peter Boyle, indeed it was Erne who created the better chances in that half with Mulligan and Ward just off target. The second half began with Erne on the front foot and they missed a glorious chance when Ward fired over with only the keeper to beat. It looked like they would rue that miss when Cathal Gallagher fired the league leaders in front on sixty minutes from inside the box. That strike seemed to wake up Erne and they responded brilliantly when Micheal Mc Neely scored straight from a corner on sixty five minutes and Sticky Ward put them in front five minutes later when he was first to react when Mulligan’s free kick came back of the bar to side foot home. It was all the home team now and they were relentlessly pressing Glencar and turning over possession and Ward put them two ahead on seventy two minutes when he hit a shot from outside the box and it curled into the top corner. Ward then completed his hat-trick on eighty four minutes when Dolan found him inside the box. David Dolan then added the fifth in injury time when he headed home from Alan Russell’s cross. Great performance from Wanderers with everyone from one to eleven putting in a shift but Ryan O’Brien at centre back and Sticky Ward up front were immense with Ray Quinn doing a solid job at the back for Glencar. Referee: Martin Mc Anneny.Fintown Harps AFC 1 Glenree United Reserves 0It’s was the final game of the season and a must win for Fintown. Both sides made great attempts at scoring but the wind had the upper hand. In the 64th minute Shan McMillan broke through the defence and he made no mistake in putting it in the back of the net. Team performance by both teams.Glencar Inn Saturday Division TwoCranford United Reserves 2 Drumbar F.C. 1Cranford got the better of Drumbar in a game played in rough conditions. Cranford started well and took the lead after 15 minutes through Gerard Coyle who scored a header from a corner. The game was fairly even from then on and Drumbar equalised in the last 15 minutes after their striker chipped the helpless keeper. With the game looking like it was heading for a draw Danny Mc Bride got the winner after a well worked goal. Best for Cranford Paddy Mc Geever, Danny Mc Bride and Odhran Coll.Tullyvinney Rovers 1 Keadue Rovers Reserves 4Keadue came out on top in a hard fought battle in Killygordan and in doing so, clinched the Glencar Inn Division Two title. A weakened home side started the brighter and showed an attacking threat with Redmond Doherty coming close following good work from Paul-gaze Mc Nulty and Joel Cromie down the right. Rovers were proving a real threat throughout the half but without converting their superiority into goals they were always going to be made pay. Tullyvinney were dealt a sucker punch when Conor Greene found himself free on the edge of the box and rifled the ball into the bottom corner of Eamon Connaghan’s goal with only Keadue’s second attempt on target in the 1st half.The second half saw Tullyvinney pick up where they left off and 10 minutes into the half Cromie was taken down in the box for a penalty to the Rovers. Dermot Shiels stepped up only to see his penalty saved by the Keadue keeper. From the resulting corner Shiels almost made amends with a superb header going narrowly over the bar. Keadue doubled their lead 20 minutes into the half with a long ball over the top finding Luke Neely who cooly finished. The visitors were now in control of the game and cruising when Adam Neely added a third with a superbly executed lob from the half way line. The game was ended as a contest when Luke Neely latched onto another ball over the top and finished well past the advancing Connaghan and in doing so Keadue showed why they are league winners. Tullyvinney got a late consolation goal through Matthew Grant with a brilliant finish from a narrow angle.Referee: George ClintonMilford United Reserves 2 Mulroy Celtic 2The spoils were shared in a game with nothing to play for at Tri a Lough. Milford with the wind at their back started much brighter and created a few chances before Ciaran Blaney opened the scoring on fifteen minutes. Milford went two up after Connor Meakin supplied a fantastic cross and JJ Fleming headed home. Right on half time Milford got caught in possession and Micheal Sweeney was played in to grab his first. With the wind in Mulroy’s favour in the second half Milford came under pressure straight away and Sweeney grabbed his second on sixty minutes. Mulroy had a few chances to take the lead but were denied by some last ditch defending. Lee Burke had a great chance with five minutes left to take the points with a one on one with Mulroy stand in keeper Eamon Sweeney but failed to hit the target.ReportsBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionLifford Celtic 1 Rathmullan Celtic 1Rathmullan travelled to Lifford in search of a point to ensure their safety in the Premier league. They started strong and got their rewards on 20 minutes as Ryan Mc Cullagh hit the net from 20 yards. Half time score 0-1 in favour of Rathmullan. Lifford came more into the game as the 2nd half progressed and got back on terms as Ross Porter scored on the hour mark.

At the start of the second half Milford scored after 17seconds following good work by Cathal Mc Gettigan, Peter Doherty, Joey Cullen and Lee Burke. From the kick-off Cathal Mc Gettigan stole the ball and drove home from 18 yards on 41seconds to get Milford back in the game. As the game looked destined for a share of the spoils Donegal Town scored on 80 minutes when a shot was deflected in by Jamie Heena. A good hard fought contest by both teams. Referee: Vincent McLaughlin.Kildrum Tigers 0 St. Catherines 1St. Catherines visited Station Road on Sunday afternoon and returned through the gap with all three points. With the League Title already sitting in the Emerald Park Trophy Cabinet Brian Dorrian’s men had little pressure to contend with but so determined are they that they will want to complete their season undefeated, a record only Glenea United can now deny them after this successful journey to St. Johnston. The Brian Mc Cormick Cup Final also awaits the Killybegs men while Kildrum’s Tigers will now be looking forward to next season after a successful return to Junior Football where they acquitted themselves well among the League’s elite.Cranford United 2 Drumoghill F.C. 4Drumoghill secured Runners-Ups spot while Cranford United will be relegated to Division One after this match at Cranford Park.
