Glenswilly in bizarre win over St Eunan's

Bizarre is the only way to describe the result of yesterday’s All County Division One League meeting of Glenswilly and St Eunan’s at St Columba’s Park.

Glenswilly . . . . . . . . . . 0-3

St Eunan’s . . . . . . . . . . 0-2

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, 0-3 to 0-2 is how it ended between two of the top teams in Donegal football

And if you think the final score is bizarre, even more bizarre is the fact that Glenswilly scored their three points in the opening 25 minutes and did not raise a flag again for the remaining 35 plus minutes.

Cathal Gallagher scored Glenswilly's first two points early on, one of them from an free, and Gary McFadden completed the scoring five minutes before half-time.

Corner-back Conor Parke scored St Eunan’s first half point just before half-time and Conor Gibbons their second on 45 minutes.

Glenswilly picked up two precious league points in their bid to get away from the foot of table and automatic relegation.

The win moves them to within a point of third from bottom Termon, but with Ardara winning in Bundoran, they still are just two points better off than Ardara.
