Buncrana Hearts Res  5

In an entertaining opening half Buncrana raced into a three goal lead but a determined fightback saw Glengad reduce the deficit to the minimum. The home side had the first chance of the game on 8 minutes when Liam Nelson advanced to the byeline and pulled the ball back for PJ McDaid who fired straight at Cathal McNutt from fifteen yards. Buncrana then took the lead minutes later when John Timlin released Christopher McKinley and he fired low past Michael

McLaughlin from the edge of the area. They made it two nil with a deflected Pat Loughery effort before McKinley intercepted a back pass on the half hour and calmly slotted past McLaughlin.On 35 minutes the home side reduced the deficit when Brian Doherty fed McDaid and he chipped McNutt from the edge of the area. They got another goal back before the break after McNutt was caught in possession by  McDaid who had the easiest of tasks to slot home.

But Buncrana increased their lead on 56 minutes when Pat Loughery found space inside the area to control a Timlin cross and slot low past McLaughlin. To their credit Glengad battled back and got another goal to make it four three when Mark Smyth fired a twenty yards free around the wall and into the bottom corner. But Buncrana sealed things on 83 minutes when Mark McFadden broke clear and although his initial effort was blocked by McLaughlin the rebound fell nicely for him to slot home.
