Buncrana’s under 10 hurlers stormed to the top of division three of the North Antrim League after an extremely impressive performance in Ballymoney on Saturday. They ran out victors against Muff, Slaughtneil, Loughgiel Shamrocks, Sarsfields and O”Donovan Rossa and drew against Bredagh to finish out on top, and unbeaten. They will now face Loughgiel Shamrocks in the league final next Saturday in Ballymena. The Buncrana boys were in impressive form with James O’Hagan’s commanding performance in goal and Conor Cullen’s rock solid defense providing a platform for success. Liam O’Dochartaigh and Caolan O’Neill dominated in midfield and both had their names on the scoresheet while Jordan Arthur’s free-scoring performance up front ensured Buncrana finished as deserved table toppers with 11 from 12 points.
