With a reduced programme of fixtures in the Donegal League, the failure of promotion-chasing Convoy Arsenal to beat Cranford in the Temple Domestic Appliances Division One was the big talking point yesterday.

There were games too in Division Two and the top three all won ensuring that the title race goes down to the final weekend.

Temple Domestic Appliances Division One

In Division One, there were two games played yesterday and they both had significance at each end of the table.

Convoy Arsenal's failure to beat Cranford United has left the way open for Lagan Harps at the top.

Lagan now lead by three points with two games to play. Convoy and Donegal Town are level in second spot, but both teams need Lagan to slip up if they are to have any chance of stealing the league title.

The 3-3 draw between Convoy and Cranford means Cranford are favourites to avoid automatic relegation. Even though Kerrykeel won 2-1 against Bonagee, Cranford are six points clear and Kerrykeel have only two games left to play.

At Cranford Park, the home side led Convoy 2-0 but Johnny Robb scored twice for Convoy to draw them level.

Lee Guthrie thought he had won it for Convoy but Cranford equalised late on to take a point.

All three of the top sides in the division are in action next Sunday - all of them away from home.

Lagan Harps will be crowned champions if they win at Keadue and Donegal Town and Convoy Arsenal both fail to win in their games.


As expected, Division Two will serve up ban exciting last weekend with only a point separating the top three sides going into the final series of matches.

Deele Harps, Glenree United and Erne Wanderers remain in a three-way battle for the title.

Deele picked up a hard earned victory at Copany Rovers yesterday, winning 2-1. Their goals came from Shane Gallagher and Conor Catterson.

Glenree United came from behind to win 2-1 against Eany Celtic. Barney Boyce scored a penalty and John McClafferty got the winner for Glenree.

Erne Wanderers cruised to a 5-1 victory over Curragh. They led 1-0 at half time thanks to Philip Patton's goal. Barry Mulligan scored a second shortly after half time.

Mulligan added his second from the penalty spot and Mark Dorrian and Patton again rounded off the win.

Also yesterday, Ballybofey Utd beat Whitestrand 2-1 and Letterbarrow beat Dunkineely Celtic, also 2-1.
