Doon 3-12 Garryspillane 1-18

Two goals in the last 4 minutes of the game kept Doon in with a shout in their County Senior League game v Garryspillane last Sunday evening (7th July). We had trailed for the entire first half and were 6 points down at the interval but emerged with a renewed hunger in the second half with unanswered points in quick succession from George Allis, Dinny Moloney, Tony Joe Berekery and Liam Ryan. At 11 minutes into the second half, our disadvantage was down to a mere 2 points.

Some more points were exchanged through the middle of the half with Doon conceding more than our fair share of frees. With 4 minutes to go, we saw ourselves 4 points down until wing forward Patrick Cummins hit the net. The Bouncer’s response was a point, but sub Michael Fitgerald’s response to that was another Doon goal. The final puck of the game was Garryspillane’s – that a point from a free which levelled the game at Doon 3-12 Garryspillane 1-18.
