DAVY McLaughlin’s senior ladies footballers had a stunning away victory over Clare in their National League Division 2 clash today.
Preparation is everything in football so the ladies travelled by coach to west Clare yesterday to be ready for throw-in time, with accommodation laid on by a generous donation by a businessman.
In the end Donegal came away from Kilmihil with a 5-12 to 1-03 win, a good deal better off than most pundits would have predicted.
Donegal put four goals past their hosts in the first half, playing into a strong breeze, to leave the scoreline at 4-04 to 1-03 at the break.
And with the wind in the second period they didn’t concede a single point, while adding some class points from distance.
Elsewhere the Minors lost narrowly in a challenge game to Mayo, losing by a single point.
The U16s beat Derry in a friendly at Owenbeg by 3-04 to 0-04.
The U14s had a comprehensive win over Derry at the same venue with goals from Roisin Rodgers ( N Muire), Lee Walsh (St Eunan’s), Sarah Harkin (Ardara), Clodagh Gallagher (Gaoth Dobhair), Megan Havlin (N Padraig Muff), Madisson White (Red Hughs), Niamh McDonald (Moville) and Mya Alcorn (Termon).
