*Senior Gaeltacht Semi Final*
CLG BnaG 0-9 Ardara 0-15
After great wins over Gweedore and Termon in the Gaeltacht Ardara proved a step too far for Na Galloglaigh on Sunday in Glenties. Having just played Killybegs on Friday evening and with an injury list including Cathal Mc Gettigan, Enda McHugh, Gavin Grier, Anthony Fisher, Kane Barrett and Adam Serrinha it was a great opportunity for Danny to get a look at some players who hadn’t played as much so far this season. In poor conditions for a game neither side really got going and it was 12 minutes before the first score was registered. But Na Galloglaigh grew into the game as it went on and but for some wayward shooting might have been further than 0-6 to 0-5 up at half time. Playing with the wind in the second half Ardara adapted to the conditions much better and clinically punished the numerous basic errors being made by Na Galloglaigh. However the boys were right in the game for the majority and with 8 minutes left Ardara were just 0-10 to 0-8 ahead. With Na Galloglaigh pushing forward for scores Ardara found the space to get the scores to set up a final against neighbours Glenties in the final. Now Na Galloglaighs focus switches back to the bread and butter of the league as they take on Cloughaneely in Falcarragh next Saturday evening. Team: Sean Gallagher, Kieran Sheridan, Barry McNulty, Tj Evesson, Gary Merritt (0-1), Sean Black, PJ Hagan, Luke Barrett (0-2), Joey Cullen, Darragh Black (0-2), Pauric Curley (0-1), Christopher Barrett (0-1), David Curley, Kyle Black (0-2), Paddy Peoples. Subs: Jonny Logue for Sheridan (HT), Brandon Toye for Cullen (42m), Dean Burgess for D. Black (50m), Cormac Toland for Hagan (52m), Cormac Friel for Merritt (58m), Conor McNulty, Caolan Mc Gettigan

*Div 3 Minor League Final*
CLG BnaG v Termon
Downings, Wednesday @ 7pm
Good luck to our Minors who take on Termon in the Division 3 Northern League Final this Wednesday in Downings. All support to get behind the lads would be much appreciated.

CLG BnaG 0-13 Killybegs 0-13
The Seniors played out an exciting draw with Killybegs on Friday evening in a game that could have went either way. Killybegs started the game much brighter than their hosts and seemed to be first to every ball. They were also dominating physically for the first 20 minutes or so and when they went 0-5 to 0-1 up against the wind it looked like it could be a rough day for Na Galloglaigh. But the boys responded very well and in the final 10 minutes took some great scores to draw level. Killybegs snuck ahead again right at the end of the half to leave the score 0-7 to 0-6 and Na Galloglaigh with an uphill task. Yet again though the boys showed great character against a stiff breeze and scores throughout the half were pretty much tit for tat. With less than 10 minutes of the game left Sean Black made a miraculous goal line clearance to keep the boys in the game, and in a frantic finale either side almost nicked winners. All in all a draw was a probably a fair result, although Na Galloglaigh will probably rue their slow start. Team: Caolan Mc Gettigan, Brandon Toye, Barry McNulty, Conor McNulty, Gary Merritt (0-1), Sean Black, Tj Evesson, Luke Barrett (0-1), Jonny Logue, Cathal Mc Gettigan (0-3), Christopher Barrett (0-5), Darragh Black (0-1), David Curley, Pauric Curley (0-2), Paddy Peoples. Subs: Joey Cullen for Toye (HT), Kyle Black for Logue (52m), Kieran Sheridan, Gavin Grier, Dean Burgess, Sean Gallagher, Paul Sweeney, PJ Hagan, Cormac Friel
