It was quarter final day in the U12 section of the Hughes Insurance Foyle Cup and it kicked off at the Brandywell Showgrounds between Waterford and Donegal Schoolboys. As expected, the first ten minutes were tight with both teams jostling for possession and not wanting to give anything away. The breakthrough did come shortly after however with Donegal’s Conor Black using his pace to latch onto a long ball over the top and the striker made no mistake as he looked up and smashed the ball home to make it 1-0. Both sides continued to play nice football as the half went on and the hundred-strong crowd at the home of Derry City enjoyed the competitive nature of the game. It remained tight in the closing stages of the opening period and it was 1-0 as the half-time whistle sounded.
