SEAN MACCUMHAILLS AND ST EUNAN’S will meet in the Donegal Under-16 Division 1 Championship final after recording victories in their respective semi-finals today.
The game will be a repeat of last Monday’s exciting and sometimes fiery Northern Board final, won by Sean MacCumhaills after extra time.
MacCumhaills defeated Four Masters 4-13 to 0-11 at Pairc Naomh Mhuire in Convoy while St Eunan’s beat Kilcar 3-11 to 2-07 at Rosses Park in Dungloe.
MacCumhaills blasted 1-3 in the opening seven minutes with Oisin Gallen and Chad McSorley points sandwiching a goal for Cormac Glackin.

MacCumhaills really took charge with two goals before half-time with Gallen firing home after getting on the end of Conor Lillis’ fisted pass and the third was netted by Glackin.
McSorley’s point put the Twin Towns side 3-5 to 0-5 in front at the break.
Gallen and McSorley kept the scores ticking and they added another major when Lillis fired home.
Jamie Keegan, Fintan Griffin and Anthony Brutton got on the mark as the Finnsiders took a comfortable win.
In Dungloe, St Eunan’s pulled away from Kilcar in the second half to win by seven.
Michael McGroary’s first-half goal had them four ahead, 1-6 to 1-2, at half-time with Brian O’Donnell netting a penalty for the Towney men.
Oisin Purdy netted a second for St Eunan’s and Matthew McGovern stepped up with a third.
Paddy McColgan notched four points, Niall Hannigan helped himself to three with Aaron Deeney and Louis Hasson also on the mark.
Shane Gillespie score a goal for Kilcar in the second half, but St Eunan’s made safe their passage to another county final.
