Glenswilly got the draw that the others wanted, paired with Malin in the Donegal Senior Championship semi-final; while the big two, Kilcar and Naomh Conaill have to battle it out after the draw was made in MacCumhaill Park on Sunday evening.
In a hectic weekend of GAA Championship action, the senior championship is down to last four after Kilcar annihilated Termon; Michael Murphy hit 2-5 for Glenswilly against MacCumhaill's; Darragh Gallagher hit the vital goal for Naomh Conaill to despatch St. Eunan's and Malin's experience sees them in semi-final again at the expense of Dungloe.
At Intermediate level, favourites Milford just get over line against Naomh Brid; Burt shock Cloughaneely; Aodh Ruadh too strong for Naomh Ultan while Naomh Columba and St. Naul's will meet again after drawing, thanks to a late Danny McDyre goal.
Downings and Naomh Padraig, Muff, won their semi-finals to reach the Junior Championship final.
Four Masters and Ardara ensured that they would be in the senior championship again next year while Killybegs and Glenfin will battle it out for the one remaining spot.
On Friday night, there was disappointment as the Finn Harps v St. Patrick's SSE Airtricity Premier League game was called off some 45 minutes before kick-off when the referee deemed the Finn Park pitch unplayable - something which Finn Harps would dispute.
The weather disrupted some of the Donegal League schedule, while last year's beaten finalists, Letterkenny Rovers, were dumped out of the FAI Intermediate Cup by Cockhill Celtic.
Letterkenny boxer, Darren Mangan, is set to make a return to the professional ring on November 5th.
Raphoe Hockey Club lost out narrowly 3-2 in their first game of the year.
