Brendan Devenney was far from impressed with the fare served up by Gaoth Dobhair and St Eunan's in their Donegal SFC Group A first round clash at Magheragallon yesterday.

Defensive football was the order of the day as the sides fought out a dour 1-3 to 0-6 draw. St Eunan's led by 0-4 to 0-2 at half-time, but reigning county and Ulster champions salvaged a share of the spoils thanks to an Odhran MacNiallais goal eight minutes from the end.

Former county star Devenney lamented the lack of attacking football on display:



There were wins for St Michael's, Sean MacCumhaill's, Naomh Conaill, Milford, Bundoran and Kilcar in the other first round games, while Michael Murphy's late free earned Glenswilly a 0-14 to 1-11 draw with 14-man Glenfin.
