Hard luck to our U14s who were beaten by Garryspillane in the shield final last saturday in Rathkeale. Doon didn't get off to the best of starts and we found ourselves chasing the game for all of the first half where the free taking of Josh Ryan kept us in touch and we trailed 0-4 to 0-8 at half time. The second half began like the first and Garryspillane put over two points in quick succession. However, as has been with this team all year, Doon began to knuckle down and while defending like tigers started to chip away at the Garryspillane lead. A great goal from Eoin Doyle, points from Chris Berkery and Mark Coleman, and Josh's freetaking bringing us level after which another great goal this time from Eoin Ryan saw us go into a three point lead. Garryspillane responded well with a goal of their own and in the dying seconds manufactured a penalty from which a point was converted and that left the final score Doon 2-9 to 1-13 in favour of Garryspillane.
