Derry minors end Donegal’s interest

Derry gaa 2

Derry caused a shock as they defeated last year's All-Ireland Minor Football Championship finalists Donegal by 0-11 to 0-10

In the end Derry deserved their win and were the better team, with Conor Glass outstanding.

Donegal trailed by two points going into the final minute - but were awarded a penalty.

However, Conor Doherty put the ball over the bar for only a point and shortly afterwards the final whistle sounded.

In the first-half Donegal began well but Derry responded positively with three frees from Conor Glass and led 0-5 to 0-3 at the break.

Derry began the second half in whirlwind fashion and led 0-8 to 0-3 after a nine minute scoring blitz with Glass and McGuigan to the fore.

Donegal closed the gap late on and could have won it, but that would have been rough justice on Derry.

Derry now play Cavan in the Ulster Minor Final but it is the end of the road for Declan Bonner's charges.
