A LATE point by former Donegal player Brendan Boyle snatched a draw for Ardara against St Naul’s at Pearse Memorial Park.
Ardara 0-11 St Naul’s 1-8
Just when Stuart Johnston’s goal looked to have secured a win, Boyle drilled over to share the spoils.
Stefan Boyle clipped nine points for Ardara in an excellent display.
At half-time, St Naul’s led by two points (0-6 to 0-4), and the margin would have been wider only for Matthew McGlynn saving superbly from Daniel Brennan.
Midway through the second half, Johnston steered to the net from Stephen Griffin’s ball in.
St Naul’s led by four, but Ardara hit back with Stefan Boyle to the fore.
Donegal player Peadar Mogan restored the St Naul’s advantage, only for Brendan Boyle’s monster score to tie it up.
Ardara – Stefan Boyle (5f) 0-9, Brendan Boyle, Tomás Boyle 0-1 each
St Naul’s – Stuart Johnston 1-0, Peadar Mogan (2f), Stephen Griffin (1f) 0-2 each, Thomas White, Martin Breslin, Cathal Lowrth (1m), Daniel Brennan 0-1 each
