Championship Match
Daingean played Kilcormac Killoughey in the 2nd round of the Intermediate Championship in Cappincur last Thursday evening.
This was a tough, tense, and hard fought match from the outset with an extremely high free count on both sides.

In the early stages of the first half, it was Kilcormac who edged proceedings when they scored a goal within the first 10 minutes.
Daingean slowly came into the game, and with Jamie Hayes leading the line and winning any ball that came into the full forward line, by half time Daingean were winning by a point on a scoreline of 8 pts to 1-04.
Although Daingean had not played to their best in the first half and Kilcormac were always a threat, it augured well that 5 out of the starting 6 forwards had scored from play.

Kilcormac started the 2nd half to the fore and they scored the first 3 points to go in front on a scoreline of 1-07 to 8pts. However Kilcormac's momentum was halted when they had a player sent off and Daingean came back into the game through a goal from Shane Tierney.
Midway through the 2nd half with the score at 1-10 to 1-09 in Daingean's favour, Kilcormac were still proving difficult to shake off and as they stretched Daingean's defence it led to a black card for Stephen Burns.
Although Daingean still had a numerical advantage, with 5 minutes to go, the score was evenly poised at 1-11 to 1-11.
The match could have gone either way at this stage but by the final whistle, Daingean had won by the finest of margins on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-12
