Best of luck lads and here’s hoping for a repeat of last years performance.Senior Football: In a wet and windy Scarvey on Saturday evening, Buncrana faced local rivals and Division 3 league leaders Carndonagh in what proved to be a closely contested battle. Buncrana fielded and alternative line-up from previous outings as midfielders Ryan Bradley (county commitments) Odhran Doherty (suspension) John Doherty and Noel O’Donnell were absent. Carndonagh started brightly with Garbhan McGrenra and Richard Cunningham to the fore. The visitors registered the first score of the game after 3 minutes. The home side began to settle into the game, with the runs of Adrian Doherty and Ryan Curran causing problems for the visitors. Scores from Adrian Doherty and Oisin Doherty brought the home side level with Carndonagh, and a further score from Ciaran McNicholls brought Buncrana into the lead. It was nip and tuck between the two sides throughout the first half, however the visitors went in at half-time with a two point lead. HT Buncrana 0-3 Carndonagh 0-5Buncrana responded from the off in the second half with a good team move being finished off by Oisin Doherty. Buncrana began to dominate play with Coalan McCann and Kevin O’Loughlin performing well in midfield, breaking up play and winning possession. A long range score from young midfielder Kevin O’Loughlin put Buncrana one point in the lead. The introduction of Paul McGonigle in the second half added another attacking option for Buncrana, with the full forward winning position from a long ball and converting for a point. A free and a further point by Oisin Doherty put further distance between the sides and Buncrana will be delighted to have held on for a valuable two points.
