Monaghan Electrical Intermediate League Final: The season finished in disappointment for the seniors on Saturday evening with a 5 points defeat in the League Final against Doohamlet. Donaghmoyne enjoyed plenty of possession throughout the game but laboured to make any impact on the scoreboard. The early exchanges saw both teams trading points and with twenty minutes gone Doohamlet were leading four points to two. As the half hour mark approached Doohamlet had extended the lead to four points. The second half continued as the first half had finished with Donaghmoyne enjoying plenty of possession but not scoring, while Doohamlet were more clinical extending their lead further. The killer blow came with 17 minutes gone in the second half as Doohamlet scored the game’s only goal leaving the Fontenoys trailing by 6. A game which never really caught fire petered out in the final 10 minutes leaving Doohamlet with a comfortable five point win final score 1-10 to 0-8. A frustrating end to a season which promised so much but ultimately was defined by a number of serious injuries to key players at the business end of the year.
U16s: The juvenile season came to an end on Saturday as the U16 squad lost out to Tyrone champions Carrickmore in the Quarter final of the Paul McGirr tournament. The lads put in an excellent performance considering this was the first time they had played together as a team. The first half was an open affair with some excellent scores including a fine individual goal from Christopher Cunningham. Donaghmoyne lead at the interval by 1 point and started the second half strongly but didn’t make their dominance tell on the scoreboard, as the half progressed a more fluent Carrickmore side eventually broke the Donaghmoyne resistance and edged ahaead with 10 minutes remaining. As Donaghmoyne pushed to get back on terms a number of attacks broke down and were punished by the Tyrone champions who eventually ran out winners on a final score of 2-10 to 4-14.
