Milford United Reserves 5 Erne Wanderers Reserves 1
MILFORD started the brighter and took the lead after 10 minutes with Ciaran Blaney audaciously lobbing the keeper.
It was soon 2-0 after Raymond Friel finished off a well worked corner. Ciaran Gibbons made it 3-0 after a good lay off from JJ Fleming on the edge of the box he cut inside to drill home. Milford suffered a blow 5 minutes before halftime with their goalkeeper Barry Gallagher dislocating a finger and had to go off.
Milford started the second half strong and made it 4-0 on the hour mark. Jamie Whelan played a good through ball to Ciaran Blaney who made no mistake to get his second of the game. Erne got one back from a corner with Shane Mc Leone finding the back off the net.
Milford made it 5-1 after 80 minutes. Darren McLaughlin beat three defenders on the wing before cutting inside and finding the bottom corner expertly.
Curragh Athletic Reserves 2 St. Catherines 1
THE breakthrough came on the half hour, Connor Gallagher taking on the defender and his blocked cross falling to Paddy Cassidy whose excellent ball saw Justin McBride rise and loop a header to the far corner in this midweek game under the lights.
The Killybegs men ascended for the remainder of the half, and fine work in nets from Jason Woods denied them on a number of occasions.
Simon Cromie set up Gary Heaney to finish on the turn with his left foot put the Curragh 2-0 up on 64 minutes. St Catherines responded well heaping on the pressure, a half cleared corner on 72 minutes was met by Stephen Anderson, heading it home from 10 yards.
St Catherines fought hard for an equaliser but ultimately the Curragh Reserves held on working extremely hard for each other to claim the three points.
Keadue Rovers Reserves 6 Drumoghill F.C. Reserves 0
KEADUE got off to a flying start leading 2-0 after 20minutes. A penalty was awarded after Cian Boyle was taken down in the area and Hugh Moy cooly despatched the spot kick.
The second came from Jordan Doogan. Drumoghill settled into the game and played well in stages but Keadue defended well and went in at half time 2-0 ahead.
The game as a contest was over 10 minutes into the second half as Francis Gallagher scored Keadue’s third. Keadue didn’t finish there and scored two free kicks through Damien Hanlon’s right boot, the first of which in the 60th minute and the other in the 68th.
Aran Boyle finished off the goal scoring with 10 minutes to go as Keadue won 6-0.
