Buncrana Hearts                   1

Culdaff FC                              3

The hearts suffered  a first league defeat of the season against a Culdaff side minus two or three regulars. Buncrana started well and both Stephen McHugh and Adam Duffywere off target with early efforts.They took the lead when another McHugh effort was tipped onto the bar by Darragh Mclaughlin on 15 minutes but Pat Loughery reacted first to slot home. Culdaff got back on terms when they were awarded a penalty after Michael Coyle was upended allowing Brendan McLaughlin send Corey Wilson the wrong way firing low to the corner. Buncrana started the second period well pushing the visitors back but they failed to create any clear chances. On 66 minutes Eugene McLaughlin sent Brendan McLaughlin away on the left and when his dangerous cross was parried by Wilson the loose ball was slotted home by Brian McCandless. Thehome side hit back and substitute Christopher Mc Kinley fired just wide from the edge of the area.The visitors increased their lead when Gary Collins crossed from the right for McLaughlin to slot home from close range. The home side were dealt a further blow after Brendan Halpin was shown a second yellow card for dissent and the visitors almost added a fourth but Thomas O Brien’s late effort was superbly tipped over the bar by Wilson.
