Bundoran's Pauric Rooney on the break against Killybegs Jack McSharry during the U-21 B semi-final in Glenties

Killybegs had to come from behind in the closing minutes to book their place in the U-21B Championship final with a narrow win over Bundoran in Glenties.

KILLYBEGS 1-13
BUNDORAN 1-11

They were a point down going into added time but 17-year-old Michael Gallagher levelled and then Owen Gallagher and Evan Broderick kicked them to the final in the five minutes of added time.
Killybegs were on top early on and at one stage led by five points, 0-8 to 0-3, but Cian McEniff hauled Bundoran back into the contest with 1-1 to trail by just a point at the break, 0-8 to 1-4.
Jamie Brennan had Bundoran level and then put them ahead and they were beginning to take a grip but Killybegs can thank Michael Gallagher for getting them back on track with a goal.
McEniff and Brennan edged Bundoran back in front as the game reached the 60th minute but Killybegs were not to be denied and hit for the winning points in added time.

Killybegs will meet Letterkenny Gaels in the final.
