Conor Glass inspires Derry to an Ulster minor final place

Midfielder contributes seven points in the narrow defeat of Donegal

 

Derry 0-11 Donegal 0-10 A top class display from the Aussie-bound Conor Glass was the main reason Derry advanced to the Ulster final.

Donegal had the chance to steal the game in the final seconds when they were awarded a penalty but Conor Doherty blazed his effort over the bar.

Donegal started well and hit the first two points but by half-time Glass had led his side to an 0-5 to 0-3 lead, which they would not relinquish.

Glass hit the first two points of the second half and by the 41st margin the lead was extended to 0-9 to 0-4.

Donegal did make a spirited comeback in the final quarter, but it fell short. They had defeated Derry twice in the Ulster Minor League, but the midfield dominance of Glass and Patrick Kearney made the difference this timer.
