SEAMUS GALLAGHER WAS magnanimous in defeat today as his Moville Community College lost to Claregalway College in the Bank of Ireland FAI Schools Minor Girls National Cup final.
Andrea Trill’s two goals, one in either half, gave Claregalway a deserved 2-0 win at The Showgrounds – and Gallagher had little in the way of complaints.
“They gave it 100 per cent. I thought we’d be over-run – they have some outstanding players – but we re-organised and we played more like ourselves. I couldn’t ask for anymore,” Gallagher told Donegal Sport Hub.
Trill opened the scoring in the 19th minute and doubled the advantage with the crucial second goal, in the 18th minute of the second half.
Gallagher said: “The second goal killed it. The best team won it on the day. We gave it our all, but we just didn’t get a rub of the green.
“At this level, speed kills. The girls contained them as best they could.
“We have no complaints. We were beaten by the better side on the day. We didn’t press enough and I’d like to have seen us test their goalkeeper more.”
