Exciting Donegal young guns secure Ulster Under-21 title with resounding victory

A strong second half performance from Donegal secured an eighth Ulster Under 21 football title last night.

The winners take on Dublin in the All-Ireland Under-21 semi-final in Breffni Park, Cavan, at the weekend.

Declan Bonner's side came into the game with a big reputation and they didn't disappoint with Jason McGee, Michael Langan, Michael Carroll and speedster Jamie Brennan particularly influential in a comfortable display.

Donegal started the game well and established a 0-4 to 0-1 lead by 10th minute, with Lorcan Connor scoring two frees, while Michael Langan (45) and Michael Carroll also got in the attak.

It was cagey stuff in the opening 10 minutes, and the opening four scores were all from placed balls.

Donegal's first goal was all about the speed and composure of Brennan, who broke clear and controlled the ball on the ground, rolling it across for the unmarked Connor to tap in.

Substitute Ethan O'Donnell darted through for a fine solo strike, before midfielder Michael Carroll punched home his side's third in stoppage time.

Their most unsafe forward Shane McGuigan was black-carded on the advice of the assistant referee on the stand side for a late trip on Conor Morrison just five minutes into the second half.

Donegal's massed defence struggled to contain the movement and quick hands, but they survived a hard spell to go level again through Jamie Brennan.

Derry had full-back Oisin Duffin sent off five minutes into the second half, and their opponents stretched the advantage with scores from Connor, Cian Mulligan and Langan.

Derry: B McKinless; N Keenan (0-01), O Duffin, C McGrogan; C Mulholland (0-01), M McEvoy, J Curran (0-01); J Doherty (0-01), P Kearney; P Hagan (0-02, 1f), D Curran, P Coney (0-01); D Tallon (0-04, 4f), S McGuigan (0-01), C Doherty (0-01).
