DONEGAL TAKE FIRST SLICE OF THE APPLE

From Odhrán Crumley

Donegal proved far too strong for New York in the first leg of their Senior Challenge games running out seven point victors last night in Gaelic Park. 

A strong Donegal side spearheaded in attack by Patrick McBrearty and Michael Murphy led the ex-pats 1-7 to 0-2 at the break.

The sizeable crowd within the compounds of New York’s Gaelic Park enjoyed a competitive game of football with the Ulstermen’s class reigning supreme in the second half. The game finished 1-12 to 1-5 in favour of the 2012 All Ireland Champions.

Rory Gallagher’s side have travelled to the United States for the games in a vital fundraising platform in the hope of raising funds for the County’s new training centre in Convoy. Both sides will meet in the second leg tomorrow, evening with a throw in time of 7pm Local Time.

Donegal Team; Peter Boyle, Paddy McGrath, Eamoin McGrath, Karl Lacey, Paul Brennan, Eamonn Doherty, Martin Reilly, Hugh McFadden, Ciaran Thompson, Daniel McLaughlin, Mark McHugh, Ciaran Gibbons, Paddy McBrearty, Michael Murphy, Eoin McHugh.
