Sigerson joy for Donegal lads


DONEGAL senior panelists Michael Boyle, Antoin McFadeen, Leo McLoone and Eoin Waide were celebrating on Wednesday after their respective colleges took wins in their Sigerson Cup quarter-finals.

McFadden scored 1-1 and Boyle made a brilliant penalty save in DCU’s 1-14 to 0-7 win over DIT.


McFadden netted in the first-half when he got on the end of a sweeping move by DCU, the St Michael’s man cracking a superb finish to give his team breathing space.

DCU were 1-8 to 0-2 ahead at the break and any hopes of a DIT comeback were quashed by Boyle. The Termon goalkeeper made a superb diving save to beat away Alan Freeman’s well-hit penalty.

Sub ‘keeper Rob Hennelly advised Boyle that his Mayo colleague would go to the bottom right and Boyle listened to make a magnificent save.

Also going to the Sigerson finals weekend in Galway will be Glenties duo Leo McLoone and Eoin Waide. McLoone hit a point and Waide also played for UUJ in their 0-12 to 1-6 win over NUIG.

There was no such joy for Mark McHugh and IT Sligo, who were beaten 2-7 to 0-11 by defending Sigerson champions UCC.
