Gabby Aduaka scored twice for the Finn Harps U17s who had to come from behind to defeat Athlone Town 3-2 on Saturday in Ballybofey in the Elite Section of the Northern League.

Athlone who were fifth in the table really needed to win this one to improve their chances of qualification for the knockout stages.

Victory for Harps, on the other hand, brings Declan Boyle’s boys ever closer to a place in the national play-offs.

Aduaka had put the hosts in front but the Midlanders then scored twice to take the lead. Carndonagh’s Luke Rudden grabbed the equaliser before Aduaka swooped for that late winner.
