Junior footballers win:

Wishing Eoin O’Connor a speedy recovery from his injury during the first half.

Narrow defeat:

On Saturday night last we played our semi-final of the Division 1 County Football League against Fr Sheehy.

We got off to a bad start with Fr Sheehy’s opening the scoring with a goal but we battled back and with some great passages of play to level after 16 minutes. However, Fr. Sheehy’s got a second goal in the final minutes of the half. to lead 2-5 to 0-6 at the break.

We restarted well with substitute Luke Boland making a big difference. Two great balls into the goalmouth saw the in-form Craig Condon punching both to the back of net and then Shane Lonergan quickly added a third goal. Four minutes in and we were 3-6 to 2-5 ahead. The Clogheen side then scored two points but we edged back in front with a point from John Shanahan and a fourth goal from Kevin Morrissey. With a minute left on the clock Fr Sheehy’s goaled to level matters. And with the watch at 31 minutes Fr Sheehy’s got the winning point.

Final score Moyle Rovers 4-7 Fr Sheehys 3-11.

Ballylooby was the venue on Thursday evening 23rd May for the South U 14 A Championship semi-final against Cahir.

Moyle Rovers off to a good start with well taken point from Jack Harney inside two minutes. Jack went on to score a further two points from placed balls in the first half. Our first goal came from the boot of Conor McGrath, followed closely by another goal from Ben Owens who doubled on a block down from the Cahir goalie. Luke Delahunty had a tally of two points in the first half, leaving the half time score in favour of Moyle Rovers 2-6 to 1-0.

In the first period Cahir upped their game and the Moyle defence battled strongly with Sam Power, Gavin Byrne and Diarmuid Mulcahy in fine form. Brian Quirke, in goals covered his lines well, Alan Boland and Luke Fogarty were also solid in defence. As the half progressed, Moyle Rovers dominated all over the pitch. In the middle of the park, Darragh Bolger covered a huge amount of ground. Cathal McKeown and Cillian Crowe made penetrating runs through the Cahir defence, laying off some lovely passes to the forwards. Rowan Wagner stood out in the forward line scoring an excellent goal. We finished strongly with two further goals from Cathal McKeown and Luke Delahunty.
