Letterkenny 1st XV overcome Donegal Town at Dave Gallaher Park

Letterkenny stop the rot with local derby victory to record first league win

Donegal Town got the first score of the game after 20 seconds. They kicked off and their chasers managed to block down the Letterkenny clearance. They ball rolled under the home side's post leaving Donegals scrum half with the simplest of scores.
From here on Letterkenny dominated. First, following some excellent lineout work Michael Foy went over in the corner at the back of a driving maul.
Then following a great counter attack by Bryan McGinley, some excellent support and good hands saw Ben Mortimer go over for an excellent team score. 3 excellent penalties by Peter Scott and one from Donegals outhalf Declan Bushell saw the half time score at 21-10.
The second half was all Letterkennys. Bryan McGinley scored one of the finest individual trys to ever have been seen at Dave Gallaher Park when he gathered the ball inside his own 22 and swerved, jinked and sidestepped most of the opposing 15 to race clear and dot down under the posts.
Michael Foy scored again following an excellent break by John Anthony McFadden, he was on hand to take the offload and race free for the bonus point try. Letterkenny added 2 further scores, first big Conor Dunleavy showed a wingers instinct to finish well in the corner and Andrew Gibson showed his strength to crash over under the posts.
