THE Voodoo Venue Cup in the Donegal Saturday League continued yesterday with action aplenty. Here’s a full roundup of the action:
Kildrum Tigers Reserves 2 Fintown Harps AFC 1
After missing numerous chances in the early stages of the game Fintown finally hit the front when Odhran McCallion finished off a great move giving the visitors a deserved half time lead.
Kildrum, fortunate to only be a goal behind starting the second half, took full advantage.
Just two minutes after the break Brian Coll levelled when his free-kick found the bottom corner. Substitute Brian Breslin put Kildrum ahead with just 13 minutes left on the clock. After a neat turn, he smashed home from inside the box.
Fintown pushed for another goal but Kildrum held on to see themselves into the next round.
Drumoghill F.C. Reserves 0 Arranmore United 5
A comfortable win for Arranmore against an understrength Drumoghill side at the Moss.
Arranmore started well but couldn’t find a way past a resolute Drumoghill defence until the half hour mark when they scored two goals in quick succession.
Drumoghill started the second half brightly and were unlucky not to pull one back when Brendan Devine’s fine strike hit the Crossbar after 60 minutes.
Arranmore settled the game as a contest shortly afterwards with a shot from distance and added two more goals shortly afterwards to seal the win.
Glencar Celtic 5 Drumbar F.C. 1
Glencar hosted Drumbar in the Voodoo Venue Cup and their name will be in the hat for the next round after a comfortable 5 -1 win.
Goals came from captain Graham Cullen, a brace from Ciaran Maloney and substitutes Jordan McGinley and Tarlough O’Boyle did the damage to Drumbar’s Cup ambitions. Keelan Heeney got the Drumbar goal.
Milford United Reserves 2 Strand Rovers 1
Jason McConigley and Shane McGlade got the goals for Milford United Reserves as they progressed in the Cup at the expense of Strand Rovers who were beaten by the odd goal in three after Shane O’Donnell had found the net for them at Moyle View Park.
Donegal Town Reserves 4 Glenea United Reserves 1

Cranford United Reserves 2 Ballybofey United Reserves 1
Cranford progressed in the Cup after an extra time win over Ballybofey United.
Cranford started off the better side with plenty of chances and finally got the break through after 30 minutes with a screamer from Liam McBride.
Cranford were sloppy in the second half and Ballybofey equalised with a penalty after a handball. There were chances for both sides but neither could get the winner in normal time.
Eoghan Rafferty chipped the keeper with two minutes left of extra-time for a deserved win.
Dunlewey Celtic 1 Keadue Rovers Reserves 2
A cool afternoon in Glentornan Park for this Voodoo Venue Cup tie. Both sides started well, with the teams trying to get their foothold in the game. It was the visitors who took the lead through Luke Neely when he capitalised on a loose ball to slot home.
The visitors pushed for their second goal and Dunlewey had few chances to pull level.
Keadue then went two up when Barry Curran curled the ball neatly into the bottom corner. The home side didn’t lie down and pulled a goal back through good work from Conor Mc Mahon.
Keadue had the chance to go 3-1 up from the penalty spot but Christopher Sweeney saved well to his right-hand side. Both sides had chances in the second half but neither side could find a goal between them. Keadue advance to the next round after a solid performance.
