Donegal hurlers defeated Down for the first time ever to give their Division 2B survival hopes a massive boost.

Mickey McCann's team, who have also beaten Derry for the first time this year, made light of the underdog status with Ciaran Matthewson, Lee Henderson and Sean McVeigh leading the way for 0-10 to 0-5 lead by half-time.

Skipper Danny Cullen rose to the occasion against the unbeaten Mourne men with a massive hour. Down, with Mark Fisher and Paul Sheehan prominent, hit back after Davin Flynn extended the Donegal lead in the second half. Two Henderson frees kept the hosts in front before substitute Enda McDermott curled over for Donegal, who were earned their corn late on when Down laid siege.

A last-ditch free gave Down the change of salvaging something, but a double block on the line kept them at bay.
