Fanad United . . . 3
Drumkeen United . . . 1
Champions Fanad United ended the league season unbeaten after overcoming Drumkeen United 3-1 in their final league game.
Fanad opened the scoring in the 7th minute when Dane Dunworth, playing up front instead of his normal position in goals, was taken down in the box and Brad Patterson stepped up to slot home the penalty.
Fanad doubled their lead on 20 minutes when Ciaran Coyle found space in the box and fired the ball beyond Patton into the bottom corner.
Drumkeen started to come back into the game and in the 43rd minute Patton was denied by a fantastic save from Niall Shields. The goal of the game arrived just before the break. When the ball bounced up to Paul Bradley some 18 yards out, he hit a beautiful volley high into the net.
The second half was less entertaining with not many clear chances created by either team. Dane Dunworth did have an opportunity 5 minutes in when his header went just over from a Bradley free.
Drumkeen got a goal back 5 minutes from time when after a scramble in the box Johnny Black pounced to finish. With the final kick of the game Dane Dunworth somehow failed to connect with Patterson's cross from close in.
