Premier Division

The leaders, Milford United, saw their game against Cappry Rovers switch to Moyle View Park and they recorded another good victory with a 4-3 win.

They were ahead with less than a minute gone on the watch when Adam Serrinha scored. Mark Flood scored a second and Kyle Black, fresh from scoring for the Donegal League side last weekend, added a third.

Gary Merritt made it 4-0 early in the second half but credit to Cappry, they got themselves back into the game with a goal from Melaugh after Barney Lafferty's penalty came back off the post.

Darren O'Leary was also on the mark for Cappry who despite a stirring fightback, were unable to find an equaliser.

Barry Rose scored twice for St. Catherine's in a fine 3-0 win at Castlefin Celtic.

Gary McHugh also scored as the Killybegs men stay second in the table.

Eamonn Sheridan was the Rathmullan hero when he scored a late winner in his team's 2-1 victory over Kilmacrennan Celtic.

Rathmullan Celtic struck in injury time at the end of each half to gain a dramatic win over Kilmacrennan Celtic.

The visitors to the Flag Pole Field went ahead through Gary Gorman only for Ryan McCullagh to equalise just before half time.

The game looked to be heading for a draw before Sheridan turned a shot home from close range following a corner in the last minute.

Drumoghill FC recorded an exc ellent 4-1 win at Gweedore Celtic.

Pajo Rafferty scored early for Drumoghill only for Declan Doherty to equalise for Gweedore.

Michael Lynch's side scored three times in the closing stages to claim the three points with goals from Rafferty again, Richie Moore and Keith Malseed.

Division One

The leaders, Lagan Harps, were due to play Kerrykeel on Sunday, but the game at Orchard Park was postponed due to the weather.

Lagan and Donegal Town share the lead, although Lagan have two games in hand.

Only two games took place in this division. Bonagee United got the better of Cranford with a 3-2 victory.

They were 2-0 up early on with goals from Shane Kelly and Paddy McGowan and then McGowan added a third to put the home side in the driving seat.

However, Cranford hit back with two goals to set up a frantic finish - but Bonagee held out.

In the other game, Raphoe Town won 3-1 against Keadue Rovers. All the goals came in an entertaining second half.

The experienced Emmett Kelly gave Raphoe the lead and Frankie McBrearty added the second from the penalty spot.

McBrearty scored his second and Raphoe's third with a spectacular effort before the men from the Rosses pulled a goal back.

Raphoe, after a sluggish start to their campaign, have been going well of late and are slowly climbing clear of the relegation zone.

Division Two

With none of the top three in this division in action, there was the chance for Ballybofey United to close the gap in fourth. And they did just that with a fine win at Whitestrand United.

Damien Glackin scored twice with the other goals for Ballybofey coming from Mark Griffin and Ronan McMenamin.

In the only other game played in this division, Letterbarrow Celtic won their local derby against Dunkineely Celtic by 7-2.

Letterbarrow were four goals to the good at one stage and while Dunkineely got it back to 4-2, the home side ran out comfortable winners with Gerard McBrearty scoring twice.
