There were mixed results for the two Finn Harps underage sides playing on Saturday.
The U13s had a fine 4-1 win against Dundalk at Illistrin where Kevin McHugh’s boys built a comfortable lead by the break.
Aaron McLaughlin got the opener with ex-Drumkeen Utd striker Shaun Patton doubling that advantage and then Dundalk conceded an own goal to leave Harps 3-0 up at the interval.
The visitors did pull a goal back but then conceded again late on to leave the hosts with an excellent victory.
Meanwhile, at Oriel Park it was a defeat for the Finn Harps U15 as Dundalk proved too strong for the visitors with a 4-1 win.
Paul Rua McBride’s side did score early through Conor Campbell but the hosts came back strongly to win with some ease.
