The full list of underage fixtures in Donegal in Southern and Northern Minor Board.
Southern Minor Board
Last Monday evening proved a dramatic night of football as 3 out of the 4 under 16s semi finals were won by a single point. In division 1 Killybegs came through the first of the excitement with a 1 point victory over neighbours Ardara 1-08 to 1-07. The game was played in Mountcharles. Down the road in Dunkineely Aodh Ruadh maintained their unbeaten run to reach the final with a convincing win over Naomh Conaill 4-10 to 1-11.
In division 2 arguably the game of the night took place in Glenties with Naomh Brid over coming Na Rossa after extra time. Naomh Brid opened up a 10 point gap with barely 10 minutes to go only to be pulled back and extra time forced. The Ballintra men were not to be outdone this time as they opened up 6 point lead again but another spirited comeback by Na Rossa was not enough as Naomh Brid held on and won by a score line 5-13 to 4-15 to reach the final.
In Fintra the other division 2 final was also a very tight affair but it was Naomh Columba who will play Naomh Brid in the final with a single score victory over St Nauls 1-7 to 1-6.
The finals have been provisionally booked for this Monday evening. Check website for details and updates over the weekend.
The southern board would like to thank the clubs for the use of their pitches and facilities for the semi finals.

Red Hughs 2.04
Red Hugh’s made the journey to Carrick Field in Moville on an evening that began overcast with drizzle and continued to rain more heavily throughout the match. This was a meeting of two teams equal on points at the top of their northern board section league. Red Hugh’s opened the scoring in the first minute with a well taken point, Josh Lafferty replied for Moville almost immediately before the visitors went a point ahead again on the fourth minute. Ronan Doherty got a goal for the home side after seven minutes with points from Ciaran Diver and Ronan Kelly, with his brother Conor Kelly hitting the back of the net after twelve minutes. Doherty added a point to his tally with Red Hugh’s grabbing a goal after fourteen minutes, adding a point three minutes later. Shaun McClenaghan picked up his second booking twenty minutes into the game leaving Moville with fourteen players for the remainder of the match. The home side kept their composure and their shape to see out the first half though with points from Diver and R. Doherty extending their lead. Half time score: Moville (2 – 06): Red Hugh’s (1 – 03)
The visitors had a great start to the second half scoring a goal and a point within the first three minutes but that would be the final time they would add to their score in this game. Moville began playing fast, free-flowing football, some of the best they played this season. Diver grabbed a goal and a point; Josh Lafferty scored two more points; Ronan Doherty, Billy McCann and Conor Doherty who came on as a sub all added goals leaving the final score: Moville (6 – 09): Red Hugh’s (2 – 04)
Robert Emmets 4.03
Glenfin stayed in contention for a place in the final with a good win away to Robert Emmets. Glenfin scorers were Christopher McBearty 2-02, Christopher McGlynn 1-01, Conor Mcbride 0-04, Ethan O Donnell 0-04, Lorcan Donnellan 0-02, David Carr 0-02, Eoin McCrudden 0-01. Best for Glenfin were: Colm Quinn, Conor McBride and Christopher McBrearty.
Division Two Section Two
Letterkenny Gaels 1.15
Letterkenny Gaels recorded a well-deserved victory over Glenswilly in their final League match at Pairc na nGael on Sunday evening last. Both teams produced some good flowing football in the opening half. Cormac Callaghan with four points was the main architect of the Glen attacks but keeper Shane Graham and Conor Coll stood firm for the Gaels. Sean Mc Donagh 1-4 and Cormac Cannon 0.2 were very sharp in front of the posts. Half time Gaels 1-9 Glenswilly 0.6.
Ethan Sweeney (1-1), Paddy Diver and Anthony Ward worked hard for the visitors in the second half with their never say die attitude. But Gaels continued with their excellent teamwork and will now await other results hoping that they have enough done to qualify for the playoffs.

This is a very hard time in Ladies GAA with so many girls either doing exams at both Leaving Cert and University endeavouring to attain the highest results and either staying away studing or endeavouring to hold onto the few jobs available at weekends.Work and study take priority in the next few weeks.
