AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES
East Intermediate Hurling League Round 4
Ahane travelled to Doon on a very warm Friday evening to play their rescheduled round four league game. Doon started the stronger and would remain that way for most of the game. Ahane got most of their first half points from Johnny Meskell. They got their first point from play in the 8th minute after Doon scored three unanswered points. Conor Morrissey scored a monster of a point from midfield to bring the gap back to one, but Doon never let them get closer than a point to them. Scores at the first water break were Ahane 0-04 Doon 0-06. The second quarter was played in a similar fashion to the first one, with Doon starting the quickest. We only got one point in the fifteen minutes, and it was from Johnny Meskell. Half time score Ahane 0-05 Doon 0-09.
Ahane made a better start to the second half with conditions still being unbelievably warm. Johnny got two points before Doon got some good scores of their own. Doon had a goal chance but it went wide. Second half water break saw the scores as Ahane 0-08 Doon 0-11. Doon got another point from a free before they were awarded a penalty that they slotted into the top corner to bring the gap to seven. Mark Hickey would score Ahane’s final two points. Full time score in Doon was Ahane 0-10 Doon 1-12.
