Donegal women’s gaelic footballers remain on course for a three-in-a-row of Ulster senior football titles following Saturday evening’s dramatic extra-time win against Cavan in Killyclogher.
Donegal won on a final scoreline of 0-24 to 2-13 against a Cavan team who had finished normal time with 13 players.
It could have ended so differently for Maxi Curran’s side who trailed Cavan by five points at one stage in the second half.
The sides had been level at half-time (0-9 to 1-6) with Ciara Finnegan finding net for Cavan shortly before the interval.
An Aisling Maguire penalty in the second-half for the Breffni women pushed them in front.
But back came Donegal with points from Geraldine McLaughlin, team captain Karen Guthrie (pictured) and Kate Keeney which brought Donegal level in added time. Mclaughlin scored 0-14 of Donegal’s tally. Listen to her interview with Charlie Collins here:
