Dunfanaghy Youths . . . 2
Bonagee United . . . 1
Dunfanaghy Youths collected all three points in their first ever match in the Donegal Youth League after a 2-1 home win against Bonagee United.
The teams were evenly matched throughout the opening stages but midway into the half the home side took the lead with a free kick from Patrick Moffitt.
Both teams had numerous chances for goals but both keepers were in excellent form.
The second half kicked off with Dunfanaghy pushing forward in hope of a second goal which was denied twice by the woodwork. Bonagee fought back and equalised in the 60th minute with a great goal from Aaron Wasson. But Dunfanaghy dug deep and retook the lead with a goal from Roan Dewar with 20 minutes to go.
