Down's Barry O'Hagan had an absolute stormer of a first-half in the Ulster SFC first round against Donegal at Pairc Esler.

The Mourne County wing-forward looked to be on a one-man mission when scoring his side's opening five points.

Trailing by 0-4 to 0-0, O'Hagan took the fight to Donegal with his exceptional point kicking, including this effort under pressure.

Despite the best efforts of the Clonduff clubman, Down were eventually pegged back again when Donegal were awarded a contentious goal scored by Jamie Brennan on the stroke of half-time.

On as a substitute for the injured Michael Murphy, Brennan appeared to take too many steps but his goal stood to leave Donegal going in at the break leading 1-15 to 0-8.
