Aileach Youths 3-5 Buncrana Reserves

Played in treacherous conditions on Friday night both sides played football that defied the conditions with some excellent football on show throughout.  Aileach were first out of the traps and took the lead after five minutes when a great run and cross from Patrick Curran was slotted home by Caoimhghin McFeely at the near post.  Aileach continued to press and extended their lead on 25 minutes when McFeelys shot was deflected into the path of Curran who made no mistake from 10 yards. Buncrana got a goal back before the break when Paul McDaid rose in the box to power a header home from six yards.  Buncrana started the second half strongly and pulled level on the hour when Alan Friel stepped forward and fired a shot into the top left corner which gave Clarke no chance in the home goal.  Buncrana took the lead in the 64th minute when a Friel shot was saved by Clarke but the rebound fell kindly to O’Flaherty who tapped home.  This sprang Aileach back into life and after a hopeful cross by Benny Hegarty wasn’t cleared properly McFeely lashed the ball into the back of the net from the edge of the box past Cathal McNutt in the Buncrana goal.  With 15 minutes to go, Buncrana regained the lead when another excellent corner by Craig Doherty wasn’t properly defended the ball fell to Adam Doherty who drove the ball through a lot of players and into the net.  Buncrana wrapped the game up in the final minute when they broke following an Aileach corner and Adam Doherty fed Ben Bradley who slotted into the bottom corner to complete the scoring.
