Greencastle Res 0
Buncrana Res 1
In blustery conditions there were few chances in a hard fought even opening period. Joe Doherty for the home side went close with a thirty yards free which went just over the bar. Buncrana replied and when Alan Friel cut in from the left and unleashed an effort which beat Seamus Bovaird but was cleared off the line by Eunan McDaid.
Greencastle started the second half well with Joe Doherty, Tom Heuston and Sean Downey all going close. At the other end Friel’s diving header from a Puaric O’ Flaherty cross flashed narrowly wide. The crucial score arrived on 80 minutes when Buncrana broke quickly with Michael Doherty racing clear on the right and crossing for O’Flaherty to slot home from close range.
