BJ Banda (Letterkenny Rovers)
Letterkenny Rovers advanced to the last 16 of the FAI Intermediate Cup on Sunday thanks to a 5-1 win away to Pegasus/St James Athletic. Two of the goals for Eamon McConigley’s men were netted by the on-fire BJ Banda.
John Campbell (Buncrana and LyIT)
What a week it was for John Campbell. In last Wednesday’s HE Division 2 final, Campbell scored a late goal as Letterkenny Institute of Technology edged Dundalk. Campbell netted 2-2 for the Michael Murphy-managed LyIT.
Campbell repeated his trick on Sunday with a late goal as Buncrana overcame Naomh Brid to win promotion to Division 2 of the All-County League.
Connor Gormley (Milford)
In Saturday’s U21 B final replay, Milford edged out St Naul’s in a thriller in Ballybofey. Connor Gormley’s penalty, in the first minute of the second half, inspired a comeback from Milford, who trailed by five points at half-time. Gormley hit 1-2 and was in excellent form for the Moyle View men.
Padraig McGettigan (St Eunan’s)
St Eunan’s clinched a Minor League and Championship double on Saturday with a handsome 3-20 to 3-3 win over Four Masters in Glenfin. McGettigan netted two of the goals and ended with 2-5 to his name for Pauric Ryan’s team, who continued his excellent year in the black and amber.
