Seniors. The seniors bowed out of the Intermediate Championship on Saturday losing out after extra time to Doohamlet at the semi-final stage. Darren McElroy opened the scoring with a well struck free which was cancelled out by two Doohamlet frees. Mcelroy scored again to level matters but the next scores were a point and a goal from Doohamlet to establish a 4 point lead. A well taken Fergal Keenan point cut the arrears to 3. A further exchange of points left Donaghmoyne trailing 1-5 to 5 at the interval the Donaghmoyne scores coming from Stephen martin and Barney Kelly. Donaghmoyne were dealt a hammer blow at the start of the second half when Doohmalet netted again but the Fontenoys responded immediately with an Aaron Courtney goal followed up by a Courtney point to close the gap to two points. A spate of injuries saw James Finnegan replace Thomas Finnegan and shortly after Aaron Courtney was stretchered off the field after suffering a serious injury to be replaced by Rohan Mohan. After a lengthy delay play restarted with a Doohamlet point. Donaghmoyne were piling the pressure on the Doohamlet defence and Padraig Donaghy scored a fine goal to level the scores at 2-6 to 2-6. A Darren Coleman point edged Donaghmoyne ahead but they were unable to extend the lead and with injury time almost up Doohamlet scored a free to bring it to extra time. Two early points from Darren Mcelroy put Donaghmoyne ahead in the first period of extra time but the next scores were both for Doohamlet a goal and a point leaving Donaghmoyne two down at the break. The second period of extra time saw Doohamlet extend their lead despite Donaghmoynes best efforts they were unable to overturn the deficit losing out on a score line of 3-12 to 2-9. Hard luck to all the players and management on losing out in a tight game, we have to move on to the business end of the league now with the final fixture away to Killanny this Sunday at 3.00. We extend our best wishes to Aron Courtney who suffered a bad break to his arm during the game and wish him a speedy recovery.
