first_imgPatrick McBrearty is congratulated by Colm McFadden after finding the net this evening against Galway.Donegal eventually found the higher gears to brush aside Galway at Croke Park this afternoon in this 4B qualifier.Despite a blistering start which included a fine goal from Patrick McBrearty, Rory Gallagher’s side struggled to pull away from the Tribesmen in the opening period.The sides went in level at the break on a scoreline of 1-4 to 0-7. But Michael Murphy showed tremendous leadership to lead his charges into a decent second half display with some tremendous scores from man-of-the-match Odhran Mac Niallais to win on a scoreline of 3-12 to 0-11.McBrearty got Donegal’s first-half goal while Ryan McHugh and Christy Toye also netted to claim their third championship win in a row over Galway.Danny Cummins put Galway ahead inside the opening minute but man of the match Odhran Mac Niallais tied the game up.Colm McFadden kicked a point before he set up McBrearty, who blasted to the back of the Galway net in the seventh minute. The Tribesmen hit back with points from Gary Sice and Tom Flynn.McFadden and McBrearty got the scores as Donegal took a 1-04 to 0-03 lead after 16 minutes but Donegal didn’t score for the remainder of the half while Galway tied the game up.Galway frustrated the beaten Ulster finalists and cut off the supply lines from midfield.Captain Paul Conroy won a huge amount of possession for Galway from the kick-outs and they kicked four points without reply.Gary Sice slotted his second free in the 24th minute after Damien Comer’s persistence and further efforts from Adrian Varley, Sice and Conroy for Galway just before the break. The arrival of Martin McElhinney was a huge turning point for Donegal as he took control in the middle of the park with Glenswilly’s Murphy pushing forward.McFadden and Mac Niallais added points to make it 1-9 to 0-9 and any notions of a Galway revival ended ten minutes from time when a superb flowing movement resulted in their second goal.McFadden, Mac Niallais and Murphy were all involved, with Murphy tapping the ball down superbly for the inrushing Ryan McHugh and he finished calmly to the back of the net.Damien Comer and Leo McLoone swapped points and Shane Walsh and Murphy did likewise, but Donegal finished in style when Christy Toye got their third goal in the closing minutes as they marched into the quarter-finals. Donegal now face a quarter-final encounter with Connacht champions Mayo at Croke Park next Saturday.Rory Gallagher’s men will go into a game on a high but they will ned every ounce of confidence if they are to overcome the O’Shea brothers and Mayo.The experience of playing at Croke Park a week earlier and big displays from the likes of Murphy, McBreaty, Gallagher and the McHughs could land Donegal in a semi-final spot.Donegal: P Durcan; N McGee, E McGee, P McGrath; R McHugh (1-00), F McGlynn, E Doherty; N Gallagher, M Murphy (0-03, 0-02f); M McHugh, O Mac Niallais (0-03), H McFadden; P McBrearty (1-01), M O’Reilly, C McFadden (0-04, 0-01f).Subs: M McElhinney for O’Reilly (ht), A Thompson for E McGee (ht), Declan Walsh for McGrath (52), L McLoone (0-01) for McBrearty (54), C Toye (1-00) for H McFadden (68), David Walsh for C McFadden (71).Galway: B O’Donoghue; J Duane, F Hanley, C Sweeney; G Bradshaw, G O’Donnell, L Silke; F Ó Curraoin, T Flynn (0-01); G Sice (0-04, 0-04f), P Conroy (0-01), M Lundy; D Cummins (0-01), A Varley (0-02), D Comer (0-01, 0-01f).Subs: S Walsh (0-01) for A Varley (57), P Sweeney for Conroy (57), P Og O Griofa for Cummins (63), S Denvir for Lundy (67), M Martin for Flynn (69), E Tierney for Sice (69).Referee: Eddie Kinsella (Laois).DONEGAL EVENTUALLY FIND THE HIGHER GEARS TO OVERCOME GALWAY was last modified: August 1st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Croke ParkdonegalGalwaylast_img read more
