Buncrana have progressed to the Ulster Club Junior Football final after they defeated Rock of Tyrone 4-3 on penalties.
After being behind 1-04 to 0-8, Buncrana led 1-11 to 0-11 heading into the final minutes before Rock struck a last gasp goal to take the game to extra time.
At the halfway mark in extra time it was Rock who led 2-11 to 1-11 but Buncrana battled back and fired over three unanswered points to level the game at 2-11 to 1-14.
In the penalty shoot-out Buncrana held their nerve to score four out of their five penalties to seal their place in the final where they will face Blackhill of Monaghan.
