Donegal complete double against New York in Gaelic Park

Mark McHugh . . . scored Donegal goal

Donegal completed the double over New York with victory on Saturday night on a final scoreline of 1-18 to 0-12.
Donegal had won the first game by 1-12 to 1-5, and it was a similar margin in the second game at Gaelic Park.
Patrick McBrearty was again the top Donegal point scorer as they led 0-10 to 0-6 at the interval.
The margin was out to 0-14 to 0-6 when Mark McHugh struck for Donegal's goal to put them in a comfortable position.
New York finished well with some good points, but Donegal kept them bay with some ease.
Donegal are in New York as part of a bonding and fund-raising venture. They were minus the U-21 contingent who were playing in the All-Ireland U-21 semi-final yesterday in Breffni Park.
