RED HUGHS CONTINUED their excellent form at the summit of Division 4, but Moville and Naomh Padraig, Muff stay in the Monellan men’s slipstream with wins of their own.
Seosamh Mac Ceallabhuí’s Red Hughs won for the fourth weekend in a row as they defeated Carndonagh 1-11 to 0-9.
Damien Brown, Martin Bonner and Colm Melaugh did the bulk of the damage for the home side, but Carndonagh put up a real battle throughout.
Red Hughs led 0-5 to 0-4 at half-time.
Carndonagh were in with a chance most of the way through with Richard Cunningham (2), Gerard Doherty (2), Padraig Doherty, Dermot McGonagle, Patrick McCallion and Aaron McCarron all on the mark.
However, Red Hughs put the cherry on top when Michael Devine fired to the net, past Dermot Doherty, in the last minute to seal another win for the on-song Cross men.
Moville struck late in the day for a hard-earned, but valuable two-point win over Robert Emmets in Castlefin yesterday evening.
Johnny McLaughlin was on the mark with a goal in the first half as Robert Emmet’s led 1-5 to 1-3 at the break, with former Donegal under-21 Danny Murphy goaling for the visitors.
When Marcus Curran scored a second Robert Emmets goal it was they who looked the more likely.
McLaughlin ended the evening with 1-2 and Gary McNulyt hit three points, but it was Moville who emerged the winners.
Murphy – who scored 2-2 in total – netted his second goal and, with Ciaran Diver helping himself to four points, the Inishowen men stormed into a two-point lead, one they wouldn’t relinquish, in the late stages.
Naomh Padraig, Muff had eight points to spare in a 1-12 to 1-4 away win over St Mary’s, Convoy.
Eunan Kelly’s goal in the first half gave the home side hope, but it was the Muff men, with Colm McColgan (0-4) on form, who scored the win.
Peter Blake’s points had St Mary’s within two at the break, but they trailed 0-8 to 1-3.
Blake pulled another back early in the second half, but when Oisin McCool netted it paved the way for the border side to make it three wins from four games.Tags:
