Donaghmoyne Points in Injury Time Secure Win


Donaghmoyne 1-15, Doohamlet 2-9.

3 points in stoppage time saw Donaghmoyne get their intermediate championship campaign off to a winning start at the expense of Doohamlet in this closely contested, entertaining game in Castleblayney on Saturday evening last. In a closely contested 1st half the sides were level 3 times, with Doohamlet leading briefly at the start of the 2nd quarter but Donaghmoyne struck for a goal in stoppage time to help them to a 4 points half-time lead. They extended that lead to 6 in the early minutes of the second-half before a goal for Doohamlet, who were now minus the services of Colin Walshe, who had to retire injured, kept the margin at 3. By the closing minutes though, Doohamlet had fought back to parity with 4 unanswered points between the 19th and 29th minutes, but Donaghmoyne rallied in stoppage time for match-winning scores from top scorer David Garland, Stephen Finnegan and substitute James McCaghey, to clinch victory by 3 points.
