A late, late score from former Aberdeen FC star Sean Hume earned St Eunan’s a replay in a thrilling Donegal Senior Reserve Championship final at Mac Cumhaill Park.
Dungloe looked like they had won when Ryan Greene converted a penalty to put Dungloe ahead by one point.
However, the hugely impressive Hume responded to level deep into injury-time to send the game to a replay.
The drama didn’t end there though, Dungloe forward James Boyle had a great chance to win it right at the death, but he agonisingly seen his effort bounce back of the upright.
A first-half goal from Jordan McBride had St Eunan’s in a commanding position after the first quarter but Dungloe hit back with a goal from Ryan Greene.
He buried to the net following a great pass from the excellent Donal Rodgers.
St Eunan’s led by two at the break, and they remained two ahead until five minutes to go when Dungloe were awarded a penalty.
Greene converted expertly, and that looked like the decisive score which would see Dungloe take the trophy back to the Rosses.
Sean Hume had other ideas though, and he levelled in injury-time to bring the game to a replay.
James ‘Monty’ Boyle almost won it at the death, but his effort his the upright.
A draw was probably the fairest outcome in what was an outstanding game.Tags:
