Keadue Rovers Reserves and Mulroy Celtic stay first and second in the Glencar Inn Saturday Division Two after wins at the weekend.
Old Orchard Saturday
Arranmore United 3
Glenree United Res 2
Arranmore had the best of the 1st half but couldn’t make the breakthrough as Glenree were content to sit back. Chris Mc Glanaghey put Arran ahead with a brilliant finish to beat the advancing keeper from 18 yards following a pinpoint pass from Marty Proctor.
Sean Conlon found himself through minutes later and to his credit he stayed calm and rounded the keeper before firing home. Glenree upped the tempo from here on in and Hamlin got one back with 20 minutes to go before Doherty made it 2-2 following a goalmouth scramble.
When it looked like it would finish 2-2 a cross from Proctor was headed on by Sean Mc Cauley and Mc Garvey rose well at the back post to powered a header beyond the visiting keeper.
Orchard F.C. 5
Donegal Town Res 1
Orchard started brightly with Ciaran Gibson going close on a few occasions. The stalemate was broken on 25 minutes with Rory O’ Gorman scoring a bullet of a header from a Charlie Creevy corner.
Orchard made it two shortly after when Niall Bonner headed to the top corner following a great cross from Peter ‘Rascal’ Blake. The third came shortly after half time when Bonner set up Gibson for an easy finish.
Donegal Town to their credit battled hard and were rewarded for their hard work with Benny Byrne scoring a great header at the back post following a corner.
On 75 minutes Bonner made it 4-1 with a neat finish to the bottom corner following a fine through ball from strike partner Gibson. Bonner completed the scoring with a penalty late on. Good solid hard working performances from both teams.
Glencar Inn Saturday Division Two
Milford United Res 2
Tullyvinney Rovers 3
For the second week in a row Milford threw away three points with a poor second half performance.
Milford were by far the better team in the first half and opened the scoring through a fine effort from Lee Burke. Ciaran Blaney grabbed the second from close range on the half hour. Tullyvinney got their first of two penalties on the stroke of half time with Square McNulty slotting home.
Tullyvinney came more into the game in the second half and equalised through Stephen Devine after Milford failed to clear a corner. Square McNulty got his second from the spot and Tullyvinney held on for the three points.
Keadue Rovers Res 3
Drumbar F.C. 1
Keadue Rovers Res kept up their quest for honours at the top of the Glencar Inn Saturday Division Two when they outscored visitors Drumbar F.C. by three goals to one on Saturday afternoon at Central Park.
Drumoghill F.C. Res 0
Mulroy Celtic 1
A wonderful strike from Shaun Mc Govern on the hour mark was enough to settle this tightly contested game. Both teams had played some fine football in the first half but Drumoghill will feel they should have taken something from a game which they dominated for long periods.
Mc Govern’s goal came from a Drumoghill clearance which he latched onto and hit an unstoppable shot pasted Daniel Mc Cready in the Drumoghill goals.
Drumoghill responded well after this and should have had their equaliser ten minutes later when Shay Mc Daid drew a fine save from the Mulroy keeper. John Rodgers again had the fans off their seats when his 30 yard shot managed to beat the Mulroy keeper only to hit the post and go wide.
Micheal Sweeney impressed for the visitors wile Marcus Mc Guire and David Gordan impressed for Drumoghill.
