Culdaff Res 3
Glengad Res 2
In a tightly contested first half the home side threatened when Bryan Mc Candless beat three defenders only to see his attempt on goal go wide of the upright. Glengad responded through P.J. Mc Daid but his excellent header was palmed round the post by Callum Doherty. Culdaff moved in front after 36 minutes when Benny Fildara headed Josh Conlon’s free into the far corner. Glengad were unlucky not to be level just prior to the break when a Mc Dermott header came back off an upright. However, they did equalise on 59 minutes when Mc Daid converted from the spot following a trip in the box. Ten minutes later the home side regained the lead when Fildara was on hand to finish off good work by Mc Candless. But the visitors were soon level when Paul Anthony Mc Dermott received the ball inside the box, turned and drove home from about 12 yards for a neat finish. The decisive score came when Fildara – who was the difference between the 2 sides – brilliantly curled a 25 yard free to the net to complete his hat-trick and claim all three points for his team.
