posted 14 May 2012, 15:02 by Unknown user
It was disappointment for Doon in the opening round of the Live 95fm County Senior Hurling Championship last Friday evening when we lost our first group game to Garryspillane. The bouncers had a great first half holding us to just 1-4 as they got a comfortable 14 points for themselves.
Doon’s second half performance was one that we’re more used to from this team where we attacked from the outset with consecutive points holding Garryspillane scoreless for over 20 minutes. At this stage with less than ten minutes remaining we held the lead 2-10 to 14 points. But Garryspillane kicked it up a gear and threw all they had at us for the remainder, burying a crucial one in the net which pushed them into a lead that we just couldn’t catch. We lost by 3 points in the end – final score Garryspillane 1-17 Doon 2-11. Our next opponents will be Patrickswell and following that Effin – both of which will be must-win games for us.
