TWO GAMES in the Donegal Under-21 Football Championship were decided on penalties this weekend.
Burt and Naomh Colmcille both won their Under-21 ‘C’ quarter-finals on penalties.
Burt defeated Red Hughs on Saturday. Extra time couldn’t find a winner and Burt prevailed 5-4 on penalties to qualify for the last four.
It was the first time a Championship game in Donegal was won on penalties.
That was quickly followed by a second. Naomh Colmcille and Naomh Bríd/Pettigo played out a cracking draw, 2-13 to 3-10, at Pairc Colmcille.
Even the penalty shoot-out was lengthy with Naomh Colmcille emerging the dramatic 9-8 winners.
