A last-gasp point from St Eunan’s midfielder Patrick McColgan brought the exciting contest to extra-time.

MacCumhaill’s established an early lead in the additional twenty minutes, but tempers frayed as half-time apporached, with players and mentors from both teams involved.

When calm was restored, MacCumhaill’s joint-manager Luke Gavigan and his counterpart Paul McGovern were dismissed for their roles in the fracas.

The Twin Towns side held on to record a 2-15 to 1-16 victory and lift the Northern Board Under 16 championship.
