Donegal Schoolboys Under 12 Champions League - Round 1

Illistrin 2 - 1 Eany Celtic

There was heartbreak for Eany's U12's as they went down to a last minute winner against many people's favourites for the tournament Illistrin.

Eany began the tie brightly and went ahead through a free kick from Matthew Byrne. After a good first half the visitor's went in at half-time with their lead intact but it was Illistrin who began the second half the stronger and were soon level courtesy of a thumping shot from outside the box.

As the half progressed Eany continued to frustrate Illistrin and even looked dangerous on the counter attack but the home side committed numbers forward and with only a minute left on the clock managed to break Eany hearts with a last gasp winner. A brilliant battling performance from Eany with Danny Browne, James Boyd and Nathan McInern shining and Peadar Shallow outstanding in goal.
