CMUL 0 vs. 1 Donegal Town
On a poor pitch and in windy conditions it didn’t turn out to be the Cavan and Monaghan boy’s day. They had a promising first half with United man Darren Geoghegan making a great through-ball in the opening minutes but it couldn’t be converted by the striker. Eli Ward got the attention his skills deserve and the Donegal team knew he was a big threat. Bad news came when Eli came out a challenge in a bad way twisting his knee and was subbed. CMUL were then awarded a penalty but missed and Donegal added to the drama by scoring a late winner. Hard luck lads. Next game is against Limavady United.
