Donegal minors had an easy passage to the Ulster Minor League semi-fina on Saturday next after a very easy passage against Antrim in Ballymena.

Donegal 5-15

Antrim 0-8

Two palmed goals by Gavin McBride had them comfortable ahead by 2-8 to 0-6 at half-time after playing against the wind in the opening half.

The pattern continued in the second half with John Campbell bagging the third goal while Lorcan Connor (penalty) and Ethan O’Donnell had the other goals.

Michael Carroll helped himself to five points in an impressive Donegal display.

Declan Bonner’s team obtained a maximum points from their Group A campaign with today’s win adding to the two points that will be picked up from the walkover victory over Derry at Celtic Park, who couldn’t field last week.

Doengal, beforehand, produced a 1-16 to 1-5 win over Fermanagh and then had 1-11 to 2-6 victory over Tyrone.

Donegal will play Down in the semi-final which has been fixed for O’Donnell Park, Letterkenny on Saturday next.
