Donegal League manager defends referee despite controversial goal

It's not often a manager will jump to the defence of a match referee - especially after his team is on the wrong end of a controversial decision.

But Sam Hegarty wasn't for pointing the finger of blame at the match official following his team's Donegal League match on Sunday.

The Drumkeen United manager watched his team draw 1-1 at home to Copany Rovers in the CT Ball Division Two with Peter McNamee scoring a late equaliser for Hegarty's team.

But Copany's goal had controversy written all over it . Referee Andrew Mullin ruled the ball had crossed the line when it seemed Drumkeen keeper, John Rodgers had managed to save from Vincent Breslin.

Sam Hegarty gave his views to the Democrat's Diarmaid Doherty.
