Donegal 1-12 Aidan McAnespies 1-3
Donegal junior A team followed up the success of their B’s from the night before with a very comfortable win to advance to the final next week. A controlled and dominant performance saw the northerners to a nine point win, and another step in the race for the Boston championship and a place at the North American Finals in two weeks.

Donegal went in the break with a comfortable six point lead. Having enjoyed the majority of possession and with the back line having dealt with most of the opponents forays forward, Donegal led from the get go. The first four scores came from Donegal boots. Darren Doherty, Ciaran McDevitt, and Pauric McLaughlin were the scorers. Steven Magill and Enda Hamill cut the lead in half with a point each, but from then on it was mostly Donegal. Christy McLaughlin at corner forward got going in the latter part of the opening period and added another three, while Aaron McKenna pointed for McAnespies before the break.
