ULSTER LADIES SFC SEMI-FINAL

Late fightback not enough as Donegal lose to Cavan

There was disappointment for Donegal on Saturday when they lost out in their Ulster Ladies SFC semi-final with Cavan in Killyclogher.

Cavan . . . . 1-9

Donegal . . 1-8

Donegal, without a number of regulars, trailed for much of this contest, but produced a brave fightback towards the end, only to come up short.

Amber Barrett scored their goal in the second half while Yvonne McMonagle scored four points.

However, Cavan held out for a narrow win. It means Donegal lose their Ulster crown which they won for the first time last year.

They now go into the All Ireland Qualifiers.
