Seniors: Donaghmoyne took another big step towards securing their stay in senior football for another year with a nervy two point win over Castleblayney Faughs on Saturday evening. This game was not for the feint hearted with both teams under pressure to claim an important win. A win for the Fontenoys would move Donaghmoyne two points closer to safety while a defeat for the Faughs would leave them teetering on the edge of relegation to Intermediate.
Donaghmoyne opened the scoring with 3 points from Davy Garland one from a monster free, before Castleblayney hit back with 4 unanswered points to move one ahead after 13 minutes. Points from Garland and Declan Courtney moved the Fontenoys back into the lead and this was followed up by a Padraig Donaghy goal after a mix up in the Blayney back line. A Ronan McDonald mark moved Donaghmoyne into a 5 point lead but Blayney replied with two before an excellent Donaghy point closed the first half scoring 1-7 to 0-6.
The Second half opened with two Blayney points and 3 frees from Davy Garland moving the Fontenoys 5 clear, the Faughs were not going down without a fight and rattled off 4 unanswered points to close the gap to the minimum. A Liam McDonald point from play moved Donaghmoyne two clear but once again Blayney responded to leave a very nervous final 5 minutes. Thankfully the last score came from the boot of Davy Garland deep into injury time to seal a two point win 1-12 to 0-13. Well done lads, next up in two weeks is another meeting with Aughnamullen with all still to be decided.
