Malin got their first victory in this years Michael Murphy Sport
Donegal Senior Championship victory over Termon on Saturday
evening with a strong showing from Terence Coulhoun’s men to give
them still a chance of reaching the quarter finals. The home side at
near full strength for one of the first times all year made a good
start with Brendan McLaughlin hitting the first three scores, the
first a difficult free from out on the right, followed by a 45’ and
his first from play with a soccer style chip from the ground on the
thirteen. Termon responded and were on level terms after a goal from
Aidan Sweeney who ran on to Enda McCormick’s rebound after his shot
was saved brilliantly by Mullarkey in the Malin goal but he could do
nothing as Sweeney blasted home on ten minutes. Termon hit the front
for the only time in the game seconds after when Caolan McDaid
slotted over a free. Paul McLaughlin levelled matters soon after
when he disposed a Termon player, advanced up the right and hit
a great score, as he has done all season. Brendan McLaughlin
capitalised on the resulting kick out and after his first shot was
blocked he made no mistake with the second attempt and shot into
the corner of the net to put Malin a goal to the good. Daire McDaid
responded with a point from play, turning well to shoot over and
then he also hit a free. The young Ciaran Doherty then lit up the
match with two great scores, the first one were he was near the
touchline out on the right and the second cutting across the ball to
edge Malin out to three again as the half ended Malin 1-06 Termon
It took a while for the second half to get going but ,the first
score fell to Stephen McLaughlin who worked a great one two with
another young player Oisin McGonagle, a move started by Connor
McColgan’s great tackling and dispossession back in his own
45’. Brendan McLaughlin freed after a foul on John Gerard
McLaughlin. Terence Doherty then goaled after a great run from the
returning from injury Christopher McLaughlin and Malin led double
scores 2-08 to 1-04. Paul McLaughlin got his second of the day up
the right but this was cancelled Daire McDaid with a point out the
left and the same player then worked a short free to get another
Termon point. Brendan McLaughlin hit over a free for the home side
after Terence Doherty was fouled when a good move looked on the
cards. Caolan McDaid freed for the Kilmacrenan men but it was to be
their last score. Malin finished strong with Adam Byrne getting in
the scoring act before Terence Doherty hit his second goal, another
poachers finish, with Brendan McLaughlin’s shot saved but Doherty,
who was also returning after injury, a broken collar bone, making no
mistake to wrap up the game. There was still time for Brendan
McLaughlin to finish off the scoring to leave the final score Malin
3-12 Termon 1-07.
