Well done to our members who part of the Donegal Minor Ladies team that defeated Tyrone in the Championship on Monday in Glenfin. On this years panel are: Rose Boyle, Kaneshia McKinney, Sadhbha Medlar, Lauren O’Connell and Sinead Hession. The Ladies minors visited St. MacCartans in Augher, Co. Tyrone on Saturday and played in the Sean Mc Elroy Memorial Game, further strengthening the bond between the two clubs. The Senior Ladies are away to Termon this Sunday in the 13 a side League.
The U14 Leagues got underway on Monday night with the Div. 1 team taking on Buncrana at home. After a slow start in which they were reduced to 14 men after just 7 minutes and trailing by 7 points the signs were ominous. But the lads dug deep with everyone playing their part to turn that 7 point deficit into a 12 point half time lead. They didn’t let up in the second half, despite missing several players who were away with the Donegal Schoolboys team they turned in a superb team performance to win well in the end. They will meet St. Mary’s, Convoy at home next week. The Div. 2 team had no game and they travel to Cloughaneely next Monday, while the Div. 3 team travelled to Downings and after a good first half showing were unlucky to concede a few goals early in the second half to kill the game, they have no game this week.
