Oldtown Celtic 4-3 Donegal Town Reserves
On a day where conditions where fantastic for a game of football both teams played out a great game.
The game started at a fast pace and Donegal Town found themselves two up inside ten minutes. First a deflected Barry Mulligan free kick wrong footed Michael Gibson in goal and Mulligan doubled his tally with a penalty. Oldtown were dealt a blow when keeper Gibson was forced off but Krissi Mc Laughlin stood in and played a blinder with a couple of key saves in the game. To their credit, Oldtown fought back before the water break and got a goal back with Tommy Mc Laughlin finding the bottom corner from outside the area. They then equalised when Luke Nelis finished well. The score was 2-2 at half time.
The second half began in the same manner with neither side finding a way through and both defences standing firm until Donegal Town where awarded a 2nd penalty which Mulligan converted again. Oldtown fought back again and got a penalty of their own which was dispatched by Sean Cleary.
The winner came when Tommy Mc Laughlin dribbled to the by-line and his cross was headed back across goal by Sean Cleary for Luke Friel to tap home. Donegal tried to fight back but Oldtown held on for the win. Team performances from both sides with Michael Mongan and Krissi Mc Laughlin standing out for Oldtown
