Swilly Rovers 0

Cockhill Celtic 0

The Swilly Rovers defence and in particular goalkeeper Gareth Wade produced a stunning performance to keep Cockhill at bay.

Garbhan Friel was denied on three occasions with fine saves from Wade and his save from a Gerry Gill free was worth the admission money alone.

Dylan Hegarty at 16 at centre half together with veteran defender  Columba O Donnell and his full backs were immense as heavy pressure was piled on.

Darren Dunworth following a superb run and shot almost stole it for Swilly near the end but a draw was the final outcome.

Derry City 2

Bonagee Utd 1

Bonagee United caretaker boss Gerald McGuinness should be happy enough with his team’s performance even though they left empty handed from Oakgrove Park after a narrow loss to Derry City’s second string.

The home side took the lead on 10 minutes when Georgie Kelly chipped the keeper from 18 yards.

Derry did double their lead when Tony McNamee played Kelly in to score his second.

Bonagee got a lifeline on 52 when Lynagh went over easily inside the area and the Referee pointed to the spot.

Up stepped Aidan McLaughlin to hit it to the keeper’s left.
