Naomh Ultan 1-9
Malin and Naomh Ultan was our feature match in the Yes Chef Catering Division 3 this weekend as the Inishowen side continued their rise up the table. They collected their second win in as many matches with a well earned win against Naomh Ultan in Connolly Park on Saturday evening. Both sides settled well and were soon on the score board, but Malin put down a marker after 12 minutes when Ciaran Doherty fired to the back of the net to give the home side an early 1-2 to 0-2 advantage. Dermot Gallier and Cian Kennedy replied to put a point between the sides, but Malin hit a purple patch and inside a 6 minute spell hit 1-3 with the lively Benny Fildara grabbing the goal to put themselves 2-5 to 0-4 in front. Again the sides traded scores but the south Donegal were thrown a lifeline when corner forward Daragh Murrin goaled in the dying seconds of the half to give his side a glimmer of hope as they trailed 2-7 to 1-5 at the break.
A Cian Kennedy free closed the gap to 4 points inside the first minute of the restart but that was as good as it got for the Dunkineely men as Malin took complete control for the remainder of the contest. Forwards Benny McLaughlin, Seamus Houghton and Paul McLaughlin proved to be a real handful for the visitors as the home side ran out convincing winners at the end.
