Result: Harps 1 - Saints 2
Two second-half goals saw Stephen O'Donnell get his managerial career off to winning start as his St Patrick's Athletic side came from behind to overcome Finn Harps 2-1 in Ballybofey.
Following last Friday's postponement due to a waterlogged pitch, the former Dundalk captain saw his talented team have plenty of the ball, only for Nathan Boyle to put the hosts in front on 31 minutes.
However, with the visitors peppering the Harps goal early in the second half, Darragh Markey managed to level the scores. Then, half-time substitute Rhys McCabe slotted the Dublin team's second following a defensive blunder from Harps.
