In difficult windy conditions at the Centre of Excellence in Convoy they produced a cracker of an Under 21B semi-final with Dungloe coming from six points behind at half-time to snatch a dramatic late one point victory.
Naomh Padraig Muff had the strong wind in their favour in the opening half and raced to an eight point lead inside twenty minutes, 1-05 to no score. Cormac McColgan and Kevin Lynch who both went on to score three points each got them off to a flying start.
Dungloe also lost Jordan Saville with injury p early on but he would return to make a vital contribution later in the game. Further points from Lee Barr and two from Andrew McCarron ,all from play to put them five ahead.
Things got even better for them when Micheal McCarron finished a excellent Muff move by drilling the ball to the net.
Dungloe finally got going and got a lifeline with a penalty from Oran Fallon after a foul on Daire Gallagher, and when Luke Glerkin and Gallagher added point they were back in the game , 1-05 to 1-02.
However, on the stroke of half-time Naomh Padraig struck again , Jamie McColgan blasting the ball to the next after Kevin Lynch’s super pass and they led by six at the break , 2-05 to 1-02.
The teams exchanged four points in the early stages of the second-half, Karl Magee and Oran Fallon for Dungloe with Kevin Lynch getting both for Muff , 2-07 to 1-04.
Daire Gallagher then got Dungloe tight back in the game when he pointed from a free and then almost immediately another free deceived a packed goal area and flew into the net , suddenly there was only one point in it ,2-07 to 2-05.
Cormac McColgan added a Muff point but Dungloe then a purple patch with a run of five points in a row.
Daire Gallagher started the comeback , Karl Magee added his second 45 , Gallagher levelled the game at 2-08 apiece and Dungloe now on top . Jordan Saville was re-introduced and kicked a Brillant point to give them the lead for the very first time and when Oisín McKelvey got their fifth point in a row Dungloe led by two as the game entered injury-time 2-10 to 2-08.
Cormac McColgan converted a free but it was too late for Naomh Padraig and Dungloe held on to win a game they had to chase for such a longtime and credit to them for that. Naomh Padraig gave their all but that second Dungloe goal proved so vital and gave the path to victory.
