first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS Ulster Junior ShieldGlenea United Reserves 3     Orchard F.C. 2In wintry conditions it was the home team that won through to the next round of the Ulster Shield.  In a tight game with evenly matched teams chances were at a premium until Glenea opened the scoring on 20 minutes though Ciaran Mc Geady who cut in from the left and fired in at the near post. Both sides pushed hard to add to the score line but were unable to convert the chances that came along until the 32nd minute when Orchard failed to clear the ball and it fell to Shane Ferry and he lobbed the ball in at the back post. Orchard pulled a goal back on 36 minutes when Raymond Gorman headed home from close range. In the 2nd half  both teams looked to add to their tally and it was  the home side that extended their lead on 64 minutes when Aodhan Ferry made a good run down the left and his chip found the corner of the net. Once more Orchard pushed hard and got their 2nd goal and on 75 minutes when Raymond Gorman headed home his 2nd goal of the game. Orchard pushed hard for an equaliser but the home defence were able to keep them at bay. Best for Glenea were Martin Maguire & Ciaran Mc Geady while it was a team effort from Orchard.

Liam Doherty added the second shortly after that and Gibbons notched his second to go in a comfortable 3-0 at half time. The poor conditions stopped much of the flowing football but Glencar were still in a hungry mood after the break and hardworking Liam Doherty got his second of the day. This seemed to spur on the home side. Debutant Conor Gibbons finishing off his hat-trick with a header from a well worked short corner with Mark Graham providing the assist. The goal of the game was saved for last with Rory Gallagher coming provider this time his menacing run down the left flank he squared to Garvan Grieve on the edge of the D and his fine strike low to the corner finishing off the goalscoring.  Drumbar gave a spirited team performance right to the end Conor Gibbons and Ruarai Gallagher were the brightest from a hungry Glencar side.
