Dungloe advanced to the last eight of the Donegal SFC following a hard fought win over Killybegs at Rosses Park, earlier this afternoon.
In truth Dungloe squandered a number of golden goal chances which would’ve ensured a comfortable victory, but they found Killybegs goalkeeper Anthony O’Hara in inspired form.
Dungloe started the game brightly and scores from Adrian Sweeney and Doalty Boyle helped settle the home side.
Brendan McGuire was in fine form from placed balls and scored four frees in the first-half.
Adrian Hanlon and Sweeney pointed for Dungloe to send Tony Boyle’s side ahead by two at the break.
Half-time score Dungloe 0-06 Killybegs 0-04
The second-half was a nervy and scrappy affair, but it was Dungloe who dominated possession.
They had a couple of great chances to put the game to bed, but were once again denied by a combination of poor finishing and excellent goalkeeping.
Dungloe added scores from Adrian Sweeney and Shaun Sharkey to keep their noses in front.
Killybegs battled gamely in search of the elusive goal they required to advance, but Dungloe stood firm to book their place in the last eight.
Tony Boyle’s side topped the group and will meet either St Michael’s, St Eunan’s or Ardara in the next round of the Donegal SFC.
