GAA – Donegal’s U21 Reign Comes To An End

Donegal’s reign as Ulster U21 champions came to an end on Wednesday night at Brewster Park. Jim Mc Guinness’ side where beaten by Cavan 0-13 to 1-4 in Enniskillen. Dermot Molley scored the games only goal in the first half as Donegal trailed 0-6 to 1-1 at half time. Once Cavan went 9 to 1-1 in front in the second half the 2010 champions found it difficult to cut the deficit. So a disappointing night for Donegal as Cavan go through to their second successive Ulster decider.

Meanwhile Tyrone and Down will meet for a third time next week after their U21 quarter-final finished level after extra time at Healy Park. Connaire Harrison’s goal sent Down in three points ahead at the break before Kyle Coney levelled for Tyrone in stoppage time. Coney gave the red hands a three-point advantage in extra-time but Paul Devlin’s free earned Down a rematch. Monaghan await the eventual winners in the semi-final.
