Dungloe ease to victory

Barry Curran and Luke Neely scored the goals as Dungloe proved too hot for Glenswilly, in their U-21 A Preliminary round clash in Pairc Naomh Columba, on Tuesday night.

Glenswilly 0-5

Dungloe 2-11

Curran hit the first of the three pointers three minutes from the end of the first half to extend the Dungloe's lead out to 1-4 to 0-4.

The goal came at the end of a sweeping move with Danny Rodgers hitting Davy McCarron with a kick out on the left wing.

McCarron, who had a fine game at wing back found Darren Curran with a long diagonal delivery. Curran quickly transferred to Ryan Greene who skipped past his marker before squaring for Curran to drill past Cian Randles from ten metres.

Adam Neely added a point before the break to send Dungloe in 1-5 to 0-4 in front.

The four point margin just about reflected the Rosses side's first half endeavours against a determined Glenswilly who kept in touch with points from Caoimhin Marley (3) and Ciaran Gibbons.

Dungloe hit 1-4 in the space of the first five minutes at the start of the second period.

Luke Neely struck for the second goal and Sean Wallace, Davy McCarron, Ryan Greene and Luke Neely added the points for a 2-9 to 0-4 lead.

Oisin Crawford kicked Glenswilly’s only point of the second half before Darren Curran and Wallace rounded off the scoring.
