THERE were three games last night in the Donegal Youth League with both Drumkeen Unuted and Letterkenny Rovers making it two wins from two while Bonagee United got off the mark.
Milford United 1 Bonagee United 2
Bonagee got off to a flying start going two up inside the opening five minutes with a close range effort from the ever reliable Sergey Alcorn and a neat Adam Murphy effort.
Milford though got themselves right back into the game when Finn Coll finished with a fine effort from outside the box on 32 minutes and it was very much game on.
Both sides had chances in a keenly fought second half but Bonagee couldnt find that elusive third goal despite a number of good chances while Milford threw everything forward in search of an equaliser but the Bonagee defence held firm for what could be a valuable away win.
Letterkenny Rovers 7 Ballyraine 1
Letterkenny Rovers made it two wins from two with a win against Youth League new boys Ballyraine.
It was Ballyraine who had the first chance when Oisin Coll shot wide when well placed after evading his marker but it was
Rovers who took the lead after just five minutes when Adam Yisau weaved his way through the visiting defence before firing home with the away sides protestations for offside waved away by match referee Marty McGarrigle.
Ballyraine though responded well and drew level when the lively Coll fired home low to the bottom corner past home netminder Oran Craig.
Rovers regrouped though and three goals before the break saw them hold a comfortable interval advantage with goals from a neat finish from Nathan Plumb, a cheeky Jack Dwyer effort and a close range effort from Nathan Bonner.
Any hopes of a Ballyraine fightback were extinguished early in the second half when Dwyer fired home a penalty after a foul on Yisau with a brace of late goals from Brandon Ndlovu adding some gloss on he Rovers win.
Lagan Harps 1 Drumkeen United 7
Drumkeen are many peoples fancies for title contenders and made it two wins from two with a comfortable away win at Lagan Harps.
Goals or Drumkeen in this one from Jack Patton with a double, the in-form Sam McKnight, Ben Campbell, Niall Sweeney, Dylan McMullen and an own goal, while Oisin McFadden netted for Lagan.
A good start to the season for Patrick Toye’s side.
