Reserves: A young Donaghmoyne reserve side were beaten by Scotstown 2-14 to 1-6 on Saturday in the first match of the O’Duffy cup.
U17: There was disappointment for the U17s on Sunday in the division 1 final against Castleblayney. The lads were unable to play at their usual tempo and were chasing the game from the mid-point of the first half. A great individual goal from Hugh Murnaghan started a Donaghmoyne fight back which left only a point separating the teams at the half time whistle. The second half followed a similar pattern to the first with Castleblayney being more clinical at the attacking end of the field. The game was ebbing away from the Fontenoys, but this group of lads have always had a never say die attitude and again battled back with a late goal from kyle Finnegan cutting Blayneys lead to two points. There was to be one last piece of drama, in the dying seconds Donaghmoyne were camped in the Faughs box, with Blayney defending for their lives. As Donaghmoyne moved the ball across the area a reckless challenge left the referee with no choice but to award a penalty. Captain Mathew Marron stepped up for the ultimate pressure kick, as everyone held their breath the ball was struck towards the goalies left, unfortunately the keeper also went left and saved with his feet to end the dream come back. Commiserations to the players and management and a big thankyou from everyone at the club for the hard work down through the years and all the memorable nights with this group of players.
U15s: The division 2 team are away to Killanny on Saturday at 12:00 in the cup semifinal, best of luck lads.
U13s: It was a tough weekend for our U13 teams who both came up just short in their finals on Saturday. The division 5 side were narrowly beaten by Scotstown in an end to end game. It was a similar story for the division 1 side who were left to rue not taking a number of good chances in the first half as Carrick ran out 4 point winners. Both these teams produced some top class football throughout the summer and can be very proud of their efforts. A big thankyou to all the management for their commitment to this group of players.
