Glenswilly had led by just a point at half time – 1-07 to 2-03 in a goal-dominated first half in which Murphy was superb.But Man of the Match Murphy was even better in the second half, setting up the Gallagher goal early on before back-heeling a ball which new county team mate Ciaran Bonner converted.The Ireland International Rules captain showed no hangover from yesterday’s game against Australia to score after just 15 seconds with a superb point.And he added a second a few minutes later after winning the ball and taking a foul in the process – sticking the free over the bar. Murphy was going for a hat-trick of scores a short time later but ended up on the ground clutching his ankle.Killybegs finally responded – with a fortunate goal.Christopher Murrin sent in a high ball, O’Donnell misjudged and the ball ended up in the back of the net.Murphy did get his hat-trick a short time later – from the penalty spot, sticking the ball away.Killybegs went ahead again however; this time Hugh McFadden fisting to the back of the net – 2-0 to to Murphy’s 1-02. Murphy was on the end of some heavy challenges, and ended up being yellow carded himself as the game became scrappy and the half-time whistle went on a scoreline of 1-07 to 2-03 to Glenswilly.But the second half saw Glenswilly’s experience tell and they went on to see off the game with a superb performance.Murphy set up county team mate Gallagher for his side’s second goal and when Jason Noctor was sent off for another yellow card offence – and another foul on Murphy – the game was over as a contest.Then the Donegal captain cheekily back-heeled the ball Keelan McFadden who squared for Bonner to add the third goal.
