Donegal U20s went goal crazy to overcome Roscommon in the Philly McGuinness Cup.
Donegal 8-9 Roscommon 2-9
Paddy Dolan and Mark McAteer hit hat-tricks for Gary McDaid’s side, who also had goals from Colin McFadden and Shane Gillespie.
Dolan’s two second-half penalties helped propel Donegal to a deserved win at Hyde Park.
Donegal were 2-7 to 0-5 in front as Dolan and Colin McFadden landed a pair of goals inside 90 seconds in the first half.
Dolan drilled in two penalties and McAteer, who came on as a substitute eight minutes into the second half, ran in three goals.
Peter Gillooly netted two goals for the Rossies, but Donegal were long since out of sight.
