Holders Glen will face Slaughtneil in the 2022 O’Neill’s Derry SFC Final, following wins in the weekend’s semi-finals at Owenbeg.
Newbridge 0-4 Glen 2-12
On Saturday evening, Glen put their title on the line once more as they faced Newbridge for a place in the decider. Two late goals from Watty Graham’s ensured the passage would be a safe one, but it was a hard-fought battle throughout with Newbridge trailing by just two points at the break.
Lavey 2-4 Slaughtneil 2-12
A win for Slaughtneil on Sunday at Owenbeg sets up a repeat of the 2021 SFC decider. Again, it was two late goals that sealed victory – Chrissy Bradley and Shea Cassidy scoring in the last ten minutes to close out victory for Slaughtneil after Lavey had started the game strongly with two first-half goals of their own.
The 2022 Derry SFC Final will be played on Sunday October 23rd at Celtic Park. The IFC Final between Drumsurn and Glenullin will be the curtain-raiser.
