Frank McGlynn . . . on the attack for Glenfin against Dungloe
Two goals for Glenfin in the space of a minute were the key scores in this entertaining affair where county star Frank McGlynn walked tall.
The first came midway through the second half when substitute Daniel McGlynn had the freedom of the park and rifled the ball to the Dungloe net to turn a one point defecit (1-8 to 1-7) into a two points advantage.
But 40 seconds late Dungloe’s young wing back Eoin Scally carried the ball into his own net under pressure from a Glenfin forward.
And there was no way back for a gritty Dungloe side who were dealt a hammer blow when they lost centre back Sean Scally to a straight red card five minutes from an interval when they deservedly led by 1-6 to 1-5.
A deserved win for Glenfin but Dungloe will be wondering what would have happened if Sean Sharkey had stayed on the pitch.
