White the two goal hero for Sean MacCumhaill's

MacCumhaill's, into the Ulster Final.

An injury time goal from David White helped Sean MacCumhaill's to a dramatic win over Down champions Liatroim in Sunday's Ulster Junior Championship semi-final in Maghera.
MacCumhaill's . . . 2-13
Liatroim . . . 2-11
The Donegal side had played well throughout an exhilarating tie, but found themselves behind as the game entered two minutes of injury time.
However, they managed to conjure up a goal when David White crashed the ball to the net for his second goal of the game.
It gave Eamonn McAuley's team a two point win and handed them a place in the provincial final.
The Down side, who are an experienced outfit, started the brighter and were 1-2 to 0-2 to the good after ten minutes.
But MacCumhaill's enjoyed a good spell of their own and White struck for his team's opening goal to bring his team to within a point of their opponents, 1-4 to 1-3.
A Lee Henderson '65 levelled the game and Henderson scored again to help MacCumhaill's into a two point lead at the break, 1-7 to 1-5.
The Twin Towns club eased into a four point lead early in the second half, 1-9 to 1-5 but a short time later, Liatroim struck for another goal to level the game, 2-8 to 1-11.
The Down men were in front going into the final moments of the contest before White popped up with the all-important second goal.
MacCumhaill's can now look forward to a provincial decider but just who they will meet in that final remains to be seen.
Up until yesterday, there was one quarter-final tie still outstanding with Lamh Dearg awaiting the winners in that semi final.
The final is therefore unlikely to be played for a few weeks.
