FROM MAJELLA MCFADDED IN BOSTON: Donegal Vs Galway July 7th 2012
Donegal 1-14 Galway 3-06
Duo Brian White and Brian Donnelly helped Donegal claim another victory and valuable points in last Saturday’s championship game against Galway.
A quick goal in the opening seconds from Galways Padraig O Rourke may have been the kickstart Donegals defence needed.
The TirConaill men bounced back with points from Eddie Kelly and Brian Donnelly with a missed goal chance from Ferghal Clancy.
O Rourke, nephew of the great Meath footballer, Colm O Rourke played a blinder up front for Galway. Scoring 2-03 from a total of 3-06, Donegal had a difficult task keeping him at bay!
Donegal were dealt a blow just before half time when Garbhan Friel was sent off having received a second yellow card.
Half time score – Donegal 1-07 Galway 1-04
Galway quickly won possession at the start of the second half and O Rourke takes his points and another goal to give Galway the lead.
Ciaran Williams played well up front for Donegal and fists a point over the bar to level up the sides but Galway deliver another blow with a third goal.
Donegal quickly retaliate with points again from the mighty Donnelly and Ciaran Williams and Ballyshannon goalkeeper Peter Boyle saves the day blocking a goal which he passes to Mark Canny who sends it out the field. It was a tightly contested game but the final score at the Irish Cultural Center on Saturday afternoon favoured Donegal.
