A 63rd minute goal from John Stokes secured a draw as we played Cappamore in the first round of the East Junior B Hurling League on Monday 7th April in Doon. It was a typical first game of the season for both sides – tough conditions and all finding it difficult to get scores! Cappamore got on the scoresheet fast and built a good lead with 6 unanswered points in the first quarter. Shane McKenna, Denis Barry and Cathal Maher got a point each for us and at half-time the score was 0-6 to 0-3 to Cappamore.

Doon picked up some momentum in the second half and we out-scored our opponents for the most part. We were 3 points down with just a few minutes remaining and after numerous attempts on goal, John Stokes was the one to hit the back of the net in the dying second. Final score Doon 1-6 Cappamore 0-9
