Make sure to catch it all here on Donegal Sport Hub or you can read the rest of the round-up below.
Old Orchard Saturday Division Two
Drumkeen United Reserves 0 Milford United Reserves 0
Milford came to Drumkeen needing a win to secure automatic promotion but a combination of poor finishing and good defending by the home team meant they were unable to get the result they needed.
Played on a lovely sunny Afternoon at St. Patrick’s Park the first half was an uneventful affair with neither side creating very much in terms of goal scoring chances.
However, Connor Meakin did have a good chance for the visitors towards the end of the half but Eoghan Kennedy got back well to get a touch on his effort which took the sting out of it and it was safely gathered by Drumkeen Keeper Aaron Foy.
Milford started the second half strongly and Raymond Friel had a couple of good chances to put them in front.
Throughout the second half they had several chances which they failed to convert, including a couple of efforts from long range that went sailing well over the bar. Drumkeen were defending well and on occasions were dangerous on the attack themselves.
Aaron Doherty went up front for Drumkeen in the second half and his strong running was causing the Milford defence problems.
As the match entered the last ten minutes the home team looked the more likely to break the deadlock and Doherty was heavily involved in it all as he had a few efforts, one of which went just wide of the post.
Drumkeen were finishing the match strongly but there was time for no more as referee Liam Mc Conigley blew the final whistle to bring proceedings to an end.
Milford still have another chance to get promotion as they will now go into a playoff while Drumkeen will finish their season with a game against League winners Kildrum Tigers on.
