first_imgPIX: Gabrielle Gallagher: DONEGAL are a win away from returning to the National League Division One at the first time of asking after winning their semi-final play-off against a tough Westmeath outfit in Clones today.Davy McLaughlin’s side had been convincing winners over the same opposition just a few weeks ago, but there were always doubts over whether the Leinster side were really on show that day.And that proved to be the case as Donegal – who topped the table – faced stiff resistance this time around in the first half. Each side recorded just three scores in the opening period – but Donegal two goals and a point saw them lead 2-01 to 0-03 at the break.Whatever the Moville man said at half-time got the Donegal girls fired up and they eventually eased to a 3-10 to 1-04 victory, Yvonne McMonagle getting two of the goals with Amber Barrett also netting.They will now play Armagh in the Division 2 final in a fortnight’s time after the Orchard County recorded a 2-20 to 1-08 victory over Cavan.At Red Hughs today Cavan’s U16s saw off Donegal’s U16s in a very physical game in the Championship. The visitors led from start to finish in a game which saw a number of Donegal players injured.Cavan eventually won by eight points 0-11 to 0-03.The Donegal U14 Championship squadCavan also defeated Donegal’s U14s in the Championship as the local girls travelled to Templeport on Saturday.The well-drilled Cavan girls, who have been in development teams for six years, scored a goal after just 12 seconds and it took some time for the Donegal girls – making their championship debut – to settle.Donegal trailed by five points at the break and they put in a battling performance in the second half, were denied two clear penalty shouts and conceded two goals in the last minute to put a bit of a gloss on the Cavan win of 5-12 to 2-06. The girls host Tyrone next Saturday in Donegal – venue to be confirmed – needing a victory to progress in a Championship dominated this year by Cavan and Monaghan.The victorious U14 development teamThe U14 Development team continues to shine and the girls are an hour away from a final.The girls travelled to Kinawley on Saturday to take on Fermanagh and fought back from being down at half-time to win comfortably.Sabrina White’s girls now need a win over bottom-placed Armagh to set up a League Final against Down, a team they outplayed but ultimately lost out to in the first game of the season.
