BUNCRANA moved into the Ulster Junior Championship semi-finals after a fine away win over Collegeland in Armagh.
Collegeland 0-9 Buncrana 1-14
Buncrana, eight days after winning the Donegal JFC title, had eight points to spare on the Armagh junior champions.
John Campbell’s first-half goal sent Buncrana on their way and the Scarvey men led by double scores, 1-5 to 0-4, at half-time.
Caolan McGonagle made the goal with a strong burst forward and Campbell made no mistake.
Buncrana took Odhrán Doherty out of storage to deadly affect today.
Doherty has been playing the role of an impact sub lately, but having been handed a start this afternoon, he kicked seven points as Buncrana booked a place against Tyrone junior kingpins Rock.
“I always felt that we needed to be firing on all cylinders – and that’s what they did,” Buncrana manager Malachy McCann said.
“The boys worked fierce hard.”
