The draw has been made for the semi-finals of the Intermediate Football Championship.

Dungloe, the beaten finalists last year, will face Termon, with Naomh Columba coming up against Gaeil Fhánada. The semi-finals are pencilled in to take place next weekend.

Dungloe saw off neighbours Naomh Muire 3-10 to 0-11, but not before being given an almighty fright by the Lower Rosses men on Saturday.

With Danny Rodgers, the Dungloe goalkeeper, on top form, Dessie Gallagher’s team went through with goals from Christy Greene, Daire Gallagher and Oisin Bonner.

Daire McDaid netted a goal from a first-half penalty as Termon inched past Red Hughs 1-8 to 0-10. Termon were 1-5 to 0-2 ahead at half-time and they had to withstand a strong comeback from Red Hughs.

Alan McAteer’s dramatic 58th minute goal tipped the scales in Gaeil Fhánada’s favour as they overcame derby rivals Downings 1-10 to 0-11 at The Bridge on Sunday.

Gaeil Fhánada will now square up to Naomh Columba.

Aaron Doherty starred with 1-7 as Glen swatted aside Buncrana. Christopher Byrne helped himself to 2-2 with Paddy J McGinley’s men scoring an impressive 3-13 to 0-11 win.
