Down make most of foes’ errors

February 17, 2011

By Staff Reporter

Donegal started the second period impressively as defenders Huvane and McMahon sauntered up the field for points. Donegal went further ahead as C.J. Molloy set up Kevin Purce for a goal. Indeed Donegal should have had another goal but keeper Kelly smothered McDonald’s shot well. However for the remaining quarter, Down stepped up production; they outscored their opponents nine points to three. Moran, Munnelly, and Downey all hit the target as did defenders Rice and Coryn for the Downmen. Donegal did make a serious effort to land another late goal but Robbie Moran was back to parry the ball to safety. Barry Annette had two late points to conclude a very sporting and competitive game.
