Gweedore Celtic 3 – Bonagee Utd 0


The final result may flatter Gweedore Celtic as this was a much closer game than the scoreline suggests. As early as the first minute Bonagee had a chance as Lee Mc Gonigle outpaced the home defence but his low shot went past the post. Against the run of play Brendan Devine’s shot took a deflection and wrong footed the keeper with the ball ending up in the back of the net.

Bonagee continued to press and they seemed to have their reward when they were awarded a penalty just before half-time. Kevin Doran took the kick but fired it over the bar. The second half was a more even affair. Gweedore Celtic got their second goal on seventy-five minutes when Odhran Mac Niallais drove home from just inside the area. In the last minute Tommy Diver headed home from a Chris Porter corner.

Best for Gweedore were Johnny Mc Ginty and Jamie Boyle. A team performance from Bonagee.

Gweedore Celtic 0 – Milford Utd 0

Both sides had to settle for a share of the points in a very entertaining draw at An Screabán. It was Milford that settled quickest putting the Gweedore defence on the backfoot. Despite their dominance it was the home team that almost took the lead through Eamon McGee. Christy McCafferty and PJ Hagen had great opportunities for Milford but the chances were spurned.

In the second half Gweedore upped the tempo. Eamon McGee and Fionan Diver were both denied by Caolan McGettigan in the Milford goal. With time running out both teams had chances to win the game. Christy McCafferty headed over with the goal at his mercy and PJ Hagen saw his effort saved by Christopher Sweeney. At the other end Odhran Mac Niallais saw his shot from 6 yards saved by the keeper.
At the end of the day a draw was a fair result in an entertaining encounter. Best for Milford Caolán McGettigan and PJ Hagan. Best for Gweedore Fionan Diver and Jamie Boyle.

Lifford Celtic 0 – Gweedore Celtic 1

Gweedore Celtic 2013


Played in perfect conditions at Greenbrae Park, Gweedore began brightest, with Damien O’Sullivan and Cathal Campbell in centre midfield winning possession for the away team and Jamie Boyle and Brendan McGeady causing problems on the left wing. For all the pressure Gweedore didn’t create any clear openings.

Lifford gradually came into the game and dominated for the final 20 minutes of the first-half. As the game progressed they should have taken the lead on three separate occasions, chances falling to Johnny Mahon, Alan Gethins and Patrick Sumners. On each occasion they failed to hit the target. David McGee came on for the injured Cathal Campbell after 35 minutes.  Eamon McGee forced the Lifford Keeper into a good save on the stroke of half-time with a shot from the edge of the box.

It was Gweedore who created the better chances as the second half wore on and they got their reward after Eamon McGee flicked on a long ball to Finnan Diver who scored from close range on 75 minutes. Lifford protested for offside but the goal stood.

As Lifford committed more men forward in search of an equaliser several clear cut chances fell to Gweedore as they counter-attacked. Jamie Boyle headed over from an Eamon McGee cross and Finnan Diver and Eamon Curran both missed one-on-ones with the Lifford Keeper. Ciaran Ferry replaced Eamon Curran with 5 minutes to go.

Lifford continued to search for an equaliser but the Gweedore defence stood firm with Paul Rua McBride and new signing Russell Porter outstanding.

Gweedore Celtic: Michael McKelvey, Johnny McGinty, Russell Porter, Paul McBride, Brendan McGeady, Eamonn Curran, Damien O’Sullivan, Cathal Campbell, Jamie Boyle, Eamonn McGee, Finnan Diver. Subs: David McGee, Ciaran Ferry

It was a case of two points dropped for the young Celts as Keadue snatched a last minute equalizer in a good entertaining

However Keadue kept plugging and David Sweeney scored twice in the last fifteen minutes to earn a draw.
Mick Carroll, Ciaran and Eamonn McHugh were best for Celtic.
A team effort by Keadue.
