RORY GALLAGHER – ‘CONCESSION OF THE SECOND GOAL WAS BIG TURNING POINT’

first_imgDonegal manager Rory Gallagher has admitted that the second goal scored by Mayo was the big turning point in their All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Mayo on Saturday night. A despondent Gallagher was reflecting on Donegal’s defeat which turned out to be a comfortable win for Mayo in the end.With the game ticking towards half-time and only the minimum between the sides, a moment of magic from Aidan O’Shea gave Mayo a four-point cushion.However, for Gallagher the main turning point was Lee Keegan’s speculative effort at a point which looped over the head of Paul Durcan and landed in the top corner. That goal made it too big a task for a Donegal comeback and despite their valiant efforts the game petered out.Gallagher told The Irish Examiner, “It’s very disappointing, we came down and we thought it was going to be nip and tuck, and that’s probably how it was panning out coming up to half-time.“Obviously the two goals were big game-changers, probably more so the second one. It was probably a small bit fortunate, but it left us with too much to do, and to be honest, Mayo ran out fairly comfortable.“I felt Mayo were marginally the better team in the first half, but when the second goal went in, it would appear it was a bridge too far for us. “We needed a goal to kick us into life, but their second goal was a massive game-changer.” RORY GALLAGHER – ‘CONCESSION OF THE SECOND GOAL WAS BIG TURNING POINT’ was last modified: August 10th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSportlast_img read more
