DONEGAL LGFA NEWS: DONEGAL’S Senior Ladies showed their true grit as they put in a battling performance against Mayo in Castlefin today.
They may have lost by the narrowest of margins – 4-10 to 2-17 – but they can take great heart from a good performance right across the pitch, with Geraldine McLaughlin (pictured) once again in a class of her own with a personal tally of 3-04.
Former manager Michael Naughton returned to the dug-out for the game today and the players responded with a battling performance.
Donegal trailed 2-05 to 1-10 at half-time, closed in on Mayo throughout the second half and could have snatched a win with a last minute goal effort.
But it wasn’t to be their day.
The Donegal Ladies however can take a lot from today’s game, not least that they are much better than the performance they gave against Dublin a week earlier.
