Frank McGlynn inspires Glenfin into Donegal Senior Gaeltacht final with win over Dungloe

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.

Glenfin 3-8
Dungloe 1-9

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.
