Se­niors: The se­niors were away to Rath­new on Fri­day, May 31 in the league.

Even though both teams were miss­ing sev­eral play­ers it was still a good game.

In a low-scor­ing, windy first half, both sides missed sev­eral chances. Half-time Rath­new led 0-5 to 0-4.

In the sec­ond half we upped our game but so did Rath­new and they went 1-7 0-5 up with about 10 min­utes to go.

We dug deep and man­aged to get back level at 1-9 each. With time up on the clock a draw looked to be a fair re­sult.

But Rath­new won a cru­cial turnover and clipped over the win­ning score with the last play off the match. Full-time: 1-10 to 1-9.

A last-minute point gave Donard a one-point vic­tory over the lads last week­end on a score­line 1-8 to 1-7.

There was lit­tle or noth­ing be­tween the two teams through­out. Roan had the ball in the net in the open­ing min­utes, and we went in at the break up 1-3 to 0-3.

Donard had the bet­ter of the ex­changes in the sec­ond. Bren­dan made a su­per save from a penalty but Donard rat­tled the net shortly after to put them two up go­ing into the home stretch.

Credit to the lads the got it back level, but an over­lap­ping Donard de­fender split the posts and got Donard the win.

The lads take on Barn­dar­rig Sun­day morn­ing in the Gap in their sec­ond last league fix­ture of the year. All sup­port ap­pre­ci­ated.
