Minors battle to the very End to earn Replay
This weekend saw the Minors contest the County Semi Final against the Western combination Deel Rangers in Bruff. Dell Rangers sprang into action very quickly clocking up a lead of 4 points to 0 points in the first 5 minutes. For much of the half Doon were playing catch up to the men from the West however the boys stuck at the task and managed to grab a few vital points and frees to go in at the break only 4 behind. 

The second half was a much closer affair with Doon grabbing some excellent scores through Darragh Stapleton and Dean Coleman. However just as we looked like closing the gap Deel Rangers grabbed a goal to put Doon 5 points behind. It was from here on in that Doon took control of the game managing to grab goals through Pat Ryan and Darragh O' Donovan at the death to put the teams level. There was time for Deel Rangers to go back down the field and take the lead one more time. However Doon simply would not lie down and great work from Darragh Stapleton on the right to put the ball over from a very tight angle saw the game level with time up. 

Well done to all the minors on a spirited display which will see us take on Deel Rangers again in the County Semi Final replay, provisionally set for the weekend of the 8th .
