Donegal All County League, Division 1 result: Glenswilly 2-07 v 0-10 Termon

A week after their Donegal championship glory, Glenswilly were back in a league relegation battle on Sunday.

They were taking local rivals Termon and won.

It was a slow start to the game for the county champions, but they got their act together as the half went on and they led at the break.

At half-time, the score was Glenswilly 1-03 v 0-06 Termon.

The scoreboard had shown that Glenswilly were on 1-04 at the break, but a point was taken off them when a score was ruled out.

With 13 minutes gone in the second half, the close contest was all square: Glenswilly 1-06 v 0-09 Termon.

Glenswilly then got a goal to make it a three-point game when the ball was fisted past Termon goalie Michael Boyle.

With only minutes to go, Glenswilly were maintaining their three-point lead, winning 2-07 to 0-10 and that was the final score.
