Fanad United 1 Letterkenny Rovers 5
Fanad took the lead as early as the fourth minute when Caolan Kelly flicked a pass through to Oisin McMenamin, who rolled the ball under the onrushing Rory Kelly into the net.
Letterkenny drew level on 10 minutes when poor marking allowed Conor Tourish a free header from a Pajo Rafferty corner and he found the net.
In the 18th minute Letterkenny took the lead from another corner. This time Chris Flanagan fired home after the initial shot was blocked on the line by Paul Bradley.
Seven minutes later Rovers extended their lead when Darren McElwaine scored from close range after good work from Ryan Lonergan.
The second was devoid of many chances. Rovers got their fourth in the 70th minute and yet again it came from a corner which wasn’t cleared and Steve Okakpo-Emeka bundled home from close range.
With 15 minutes remaining Rovers brought Decaln Sharkey off the bench and a minute later he got the fifth for Rovers when he latched onto a Lonergan pass and finished at the near post.
