Wolfe Tones 1-12 Donegal 0-11
The top 2 teams in the junior A competition met at the Irish Cultural Centre on Saturday evening and played a very entertaining game of football. Wolfe Tones ended up coming out on top thanks to some stiff defending and a talented forward line. A Dan McCabe goal in the second half put some distance between the teams in what was an otherwise tight game.

There was very little separating the teams at the end of the first half. The Tones landed seven points to five for Donegal, and with Donegal playing into the low end for the second half, a close finish was set up. Donegal had the scores level within five minutes of the restart thanks to scores from Ciaran Flynn and Paddy McMyler. The Tones played tight at the back and were soon back on top. With scoring threats such as Mick Sammon, Dan McCabe and Sean Kelly in their forward line, the Tones proved difficult to contain.
