Culdaff FC 1
Dunree United 1
The visitors had the first chance of the game when James O Donnell raced clear but Darragh McLaughlin stood tall to turn the ball behind for a corner. Culdaff replied and a superb Josh Conlon cross just eluded Michael Coyle at the back post before a typical Brendan McLaughlin mazy run into the area was stopped by a brilliant Ryan Bradley tackle. McLaughlin then had an effort well saved by Philip Doherty in the Dunree goal while on the stroke of half time at the other end Darragh McLaughlin again saved from a one on one with O Donnell. Dunree took the lead on 48minutes when a Liam Baldrick ball over the top found Oisin O Flaherty and he fired a superb effort to the top corner. Culdaff replied with McLaughlin releasing Coyle but from ten yards out his low effort was brilliantly saved by Doherty. Then Darren Mularkey cut in from the left and his right footed cross was cleared by Bradley. The home sides pressure told on 68 minutes when a long kick out by McLaughlin found Coyle who laid the ball into the path of William Hutchinson and he fired home from twelve yards. Dunree almost regained the lead when home keeper failed to collect a ball well outside the area allowing O Flaherty to fire goalwards but Ryan Greene got back to head clear. Culdaff pressed late on but Dunree were good value for their point.
