Lee McMonagle scored four first half goals as Letterkenny Rovers cruised to a 7-0 victory over Lagan Harps at Leckview Astro on Wednesday night.

The win moves Rovers top of the Division One table above Donegal Town and Bonagee United on goal difference but with fewer games played than their title rivals.

The home side opened the scoring on ten minutes when McMonagle latched onto a precise through ball from Gareth Doherty and drilled his shot past Kai Brown in the Lagan goal.

McMonagle made it 2-0 five minutes later with another clinical finish before he completed his hat-trick just short of the half hour mark after combining with Joel Gorman.

The in-form striker added a fourth before the break when he spun his defender on the edge of the box to fire past Brown and cap an emphatic first half display.

To their credit, Lagan continued to battle hard but Rovers extended their lead on 65 minutes when Nathan Plumb ran through on goal before applying a neat finish.

On 82 minutes, Plumb was fouled inside the box and Zach Gorman made no mistake from the penalty spot to make it 6-0 before Gorman rounded off the victory with the goal of the game smashing home an effort from long range.

Referee: Stephen Laird.
