Milford took the lead after 5 minutes when Paul Shields headed home from a Cathal Mc Gettigan corner. Milford playing with the wind had several chances to extend their lead but failed to find the net. Kilmacrennan pushed forward in the second half and their best chance fell to Eddie Doherty only for Caolan Mc Gettigan to save well. Milford broke with great chances falling to Brendan Murray, Cathal Mc Gettigan and TJ Evesson who failed to convert. Referee Joe McHughLifford Celtic 3 Lagan Harps 0Lifford Celtic maintained their title push with victory over Lagan Harps at Greenbrae on Sunday afternoon. Despite winning well in the end up it took the Lifford lads until after the break before they settled into their familiar style of play. Lagan Harps came to Greenbrae bearing little in the line of gifts for the title chasers. In the first half especially they battled for every ball and had they reached the interval level it would have being no injustice. Damien Patton spoiled those thoughts however for the Lagan men. After thirty minutes he stormed in undetected at the back post to connect with a Lifford free kick that had been floated from the left wing. Needing to find a second goal Celtic were having to be cautious in their approach. Fifteen minutes into the second half JP Malley found the net to settle the nerves. Eight minutes later he did it again, this time after Colin Carlin had made a right wing run to the byline before cutting the ball back across the Lagan box where Malley was lurking. The striker made no mistake from close range. Lagan competed till the final whistle but Lee White wasn’t troubled in the Lifford net. Kilmacrennan Celtic will be the visitors to Greenbrae next Sunday as Lifford play their game in hand before the league reaches it’s climax the following week. Referee: Patrick Martin.Glenea United 4 Castlefin Celtic 0 Glenea completed their home league programme with this hard earned victory over a youthful Castlefin side. The border side played with the aid of the strong wind in the 1st half and started well but were unable to create any clear cut chances. As the half progressed the home side came more into the game and started to look dangerous but could just not find the correct final ball. With Glenea looking for the points to continue their league challenge they started the 2nd half well. Michael Barry opened the scoring on 46 minutes when he was on hand to knock the ball home from close range after good work by Sean McBride down the right. Glenea extended their lead on 48 minutes when Ciaran Gallagher’s long clearance was controlled by Michael Barry who saw his shot well saved but Lee O’Brien was on hand to slot home the rebound. Glenea got the 3rd goal on 56 minutes when Michael Barry reacted quickest to a poor clearance and he fired home. Glenea completed the scoring on 75 minutes when Sean Coll’s header from a corner was forced home by Paul Sweeney. Best for Glenea were Padraig McGee and Ryan McFadden, while it was a good effort from a young Castlefin team. Referee: Mick Lagan.Glencar Inn Division TwoDeele Harps 3 Tullyvinney Rovers 1It was a case of going through the motions for Deele Harps when Tullyvinney Rovers were the visitors to the Athletic Grounds on Saturday. With the League title already secured they were playing to remain the only unbeaten side in the Donegal League. A victory by three goals to nil retained this statistic and Tullyvinney Rovers must be commended on putting on a competitive display.League table for Brian McCormick Sports Premier LeagueTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsGlenea United17123241202138Lifford Celtic FC16114132171534Rathmullan Celtic1795342202230Milford United FC169613125628Kilmacrennan Celtic FC168623023726St Catherines FC176833030021Gweedore Celtic176921730-1320Dunkineely Celtic FC165743536-119Lagan Harps FC1761011941-2219Castlefin Celtic1701431449-353League table for Watson Hire Division OneTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsDonegal Town FC18133240192141Curragh Athletic FC18111650123839Cranford FC18106243251832Cappry Rovers1896339251430Eany Celtic FC189633426830Drumoghill FC188823233-126Keadue Rovers FC186663332124Ballybofey United FC183872136-1516Arranmore United1831411749-3210Raphoe Town1811521567-525League table for CT Ball Division TwoTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsGweedore United FC18143161194243Kerrykeel 71 FC18134153223140Bonagee United FC18124244321238Whitestrand United FC18117044261833Dunlewey Celtic1895441311031Glenree United FC188643531428Letterbarrow Celtic FC1861112351-2819Convoy Arsenal FC1831322950-2111Drumbar FC1811252253-318Copany Rovers FC1811342562-377League table for Old Orchard Inn Division OneTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsErne Wanderers FC15102344222233Ramelton Mariners FC158343527828Fintown Harps AFC1574435231225Glenea United157442718925Glencar Celtic156453734323Castlefin Celtic155822733-617Mulroy Celtic155912829-116Kilmacrennan Celtic FC152942050-3010Gweedore Celtic8071825-171League table for Glencar Inn Division TwoTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsDeele Harps FC15140152114143Donegal Town FC Reserves1585237241326Downtown United FC157352520526Keadue Rovers FC167633333024Milford United FC157712741-1422Glenree United FC155642321219Gweedore United FC154922635-914Cranford FC Reserves153751627-1114Tullyvinney Rovers1511311845-274DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE FIXTURESSATURDAY 27-4-2013                    K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Glencar Inn Division TwoCranford United Reserves                  v                      Gweedore United Reserves Glenree United Reserves                    v                      Deele HarpsTullyvinney Rovers                            v                      Donegal Town ReservesMilford United Reserves                    v                      Downtown UnitedSUNDAY  28-4-2013                         K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United                                   v                      Dunkineely CelticLifford Celtic                                      v                      Kilmacrennan CelticDivision One / Division Two – Play-OffBallybofey United                              v                      Bonagee United @ Diamond Park, BallyareDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: LIFFORD HOOPS CONTINUE TITLE PUSH was last modified: April 21st, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: LIFFORD HOOPS CONTINUE TITLE PUSHlast_img
