Donegal Town Firsts 34

Down Lurgan 0

The home side ran in five tries. Pete-so Cannon got over for the opening try (and added three conversions later). Donagh O Callaghan got number two following some great phases of forward play and added a penalty.

Gareth McMurray crossed over in the second half following a great run by Declan Gallagher, who ‘popped’ to out half Donagh, who in turn put Gareth through.

The captain’s try came next as a result of hard won territory by the pack, then slick ball from Pete-so Cannon to centre, Conal O Callaghan who fed Big Nev. Nev ‘swanned’ over for Donegal’s fourth try.

Rory Boyle applied the final touch with a great try in the left corner for the last piece of open play in a game that consolidated Donegal Town RFC’s second place in the league.
