Donegal lined up with Christopher McLaughlin from Malin in goal, with Killybegs’ Jason Noctor, Rory Dunleavy from MacCumahill’s, Stephen McMenamin of Red Hugh’s, Darren Green from Downings and Urris’s Dean Kelly, John Campbell of Buncrana, while Danny Monagle from Carndonagh came on as a substitute.[adrotate group=”68″]
Campbell scored Donegal Boston’s goal in the first half to go in 1-7 to 1-4 in front and McLaughlin also made a fine save from Mark Kavanagh. Kelly and Campbell also scored point.
Daniel McGuirk was shown a yellow card having just entered the fray, and about 15 minutes later was shown a second, and with a man down the task was now that much harder for Mac’s.
The gap, however, was closed to two points with scores from Darren McElroy, a 45 from goalkeeper Ryan McCrystal, and a well taken McKernan effort.
It was Eoin O’Connor who shone for Donegal when the chips were down however. The center forward won two crucial kickouts, and also finished off the moves with points himself, and Donegal did enough to see off the challenge of their rivals.[adrotate group=”70″]
