Sean Breen (Cappry Rovers)
It was a fine weekend for Donegal teams in the Sketchers Ulster Cup finals. In the 2005 final, Sean Breen netted the winner as Cappry defeated fellow Donegal representatives Bonagee United 2-1 to take the prize. Breen’s winner capped off a fine performance in Cavan.
Catherine Grier (Irish Deaf Futsal Team)
Ramelton woman Catherine Grier netted three goals for Ireland at the World Deaf Futsal Championships in Winterthur, Switzerland. Grier was player of the match in Ireland’s 4-4 draw with Spain as the Girls in Green finished ninth.
Eoghan McGettigan (Naomh Conaill)
Naomh Conaill booked a ticket to the Ulster club SFC final thanks to Saturday evening’s fine win over Clontibret in Omagh. In an excellent all-round performance by the Glenties men, it was Eoghan McGettigan who led the way. McGettigan posted six points for good measure.
Emma McMahon (Letterkenny Institute of Technology)
Letterkenny Institute of Technology ladies defeated Dundalk IT last Thursday in the League semi-final, Dominic McGlinchey’s team winning 5-10 to 3-11. Emma McMahon scored a superb 2-5 as LyIT edged the high-scoring clash.
Dom Uhl (LYIT Donegal)
LYIT Donegal are on a roll this season with seven wins from eight starts. On Saturday, they made life difficult, but defeated Portlaoise Panthers 79-74 at An Danlann. Dom Uhl is one of the new recruits at the side this year. Not only did he score 21 points, but Uhl – who stands at 6’9” – had a big contribution in defence, too.
