GAA NFL Div2 – Donegal Draw Feels More Like A Defeat

National Football League Division Two Results.
Donegal 0-8 v Kildare 1-5
Sligo 0-15 v Tyrone 2-15
Derry 1-07 v Laois 1-21

Donegal assistant manager Rory Gallagher said Sunday’s result with Kildare feels more like a defeat than a draw. Donegal surrendered a four point lead in the closing two minutes of yesterday’s NFL Division Two clash at the O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny. With sixty eight minutes on the clock Jim Mc Guinness side had taken control of the game with four scores from Michael Murphy (2), Michael Hegarty and Mark Mc Hugh. In the final minute a Kildare goal from full back Michael Foley stunned the home side to take a share of the spoils.

Rory Gallagher spoke with Charlie Collins.

Tyrone took their first win of the league on Sunday beating Sligo by 6 points at Markievicz Park. The goals from Enda Mc Ginley and Sean Cavanagh scored in either half proved to be the difference come full time. Both sides were reduced to 14 men as Conor Gormley and Mark Breheny were sent off for second bookings in the first half. The O'Neill County have made a slow start to their campaign, but will be pleased to finally have a win under their belts.

Sean Cavanagh who finished the match with a 1-5 tally spoke with Francis Mooney.

It got even tougher for Derry on 42 minutes when they were reduced to 14 men. Declan Mullan was sent-off for two yellow cards. Paddy Bradley who pointed from his first penalty did score from the second spot kick.
