Kilmacrennan Celtic 1-0 St. Catherines
Kilmacrennan racked up another three points in their quest to lift the Premier League Title with a 1-0 victory over a stubborn St Catherines.
The game was played at Diamond Park, Ballyare. From the first whistle, Kilmacrennan were on the front foot creating chance after chance but found the Killybeg’s keeper in fine form indeed Michael Mullen was the reason the score remained at 1-0.
Kilmacrennan did take the lead in the 13th minute after a great passage of play involving Seami Friel, Mark Friel and Enda Mc Cormack. They put Caolan McDaid through on goal and the young striker made no mistake from close range.
This goal proved to be the decisive and winning strike. St. Catherines may have been under strength but they have a great future to look forward to with so many young lads coming through. Kilmacrennan looked solid and assured all over the park and look forward to the next game.
Best for Kilmacrennan Celtic: Ryan Shields & Caolan McDaid. Best for St Catherine’s: Michael Mullen.

Convoy Arsenal 1-1 Drumkeen United
Convoys first chance came in the 4th minute with Gary Wilson’s free-kick going wide of the post. Drumkeen broke up the pitch from the resulting kick-out and were awarded a penalty that Conor Lafferty struck the post with. Gavin Sweeney reacted first and slotted home the rebound to give Drumkeen the lead. Drumkeen led a 1-0 lead at half time.
Convoy equalised at the start of the second half when Joe Mc Gill found himself one on one with the Drumkeen keeper and he calmly placed the ball into the bottom corner.
Conor Rodgers came off the bench in the second half and nearly gave Convoy the lead with his first touch, his shot coming back off the post and then cleared off the line by a Drumkeen defender.
Convoy pressed for the winner and were awarded a penalty in injury time but Anthony Bogle failed to convert leaving the score 1-1 at the final whistle.
Cranford United 1-1 Ballybofey United
The points were shared on a wet day at Cranford Park. Cranford will feel the more disappointed of the teams having the best of the chances and conceding late. The game started with a high tempo and the first 20 minutes were battled around the middle of the field.
Cranford started to get on top and a looped header came off the bar and caused a scramble in the Ballybofey box. Kevin Doherty who was a constant threat throughout then forced a save out of the Ballybofey keeper.
Cranford were on the front foot again in the second half while Jason Hegarty in the Cranford goal was very quiet other than a couple of good catches from crosses. Cranford took the lead on 70 minutes when Kevin Doherty was played through and he chipped the keeper.
Ballybofey pushed hard for the equaliser and just as it looked like Cranford would hold on they were awarded a penalty with 3 minutes to go which they dispatched to earn a draw.
Donegal Physiotherapy & Performance Centre Division Two
Letterbarrow Celtic 1-1 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C.
Letterbarrow’s pitch held up well on a wet day in Tymeen. Both teams started strong but Kerrykeel soon took the lead when Letterbarrow failed to clear, Emmet Hewitt finishing well. The second half started fast and Letterbarrow equalised when Daniel Gallagher finished off a free kick from James Mc Groary which the keeper fumbled. The game finished even with both teams happy with a point.
Referee: Barry hunter.
