Intermediate League: Doohamlet were the victors in the opening game of the season for the senior team, the visitors came with a gameplan and stuck to it. Putting pressure on the Toome players when they were in possession and forcing errors, then capitalising with runs up the field and taking their scores. Toome showed great fighting spirit and kept trying to the bitter end, mistakes were made but that is only to be expected at this stage of the season, plenty of positives to be taken from this game too and plenty to work on over the coming days. Toome 0:12 – 4:12 Doohamlet. Next up is a visit to Sean McDermotts in Round 2 of the Intermediate League on Sunday 23rd April at 2:00pm. Please be sure to spread the word and come along to show your support. #BeThe16thMan.
