Moynalvey’s eight point win against Castletown on a 4-8 to 0-12 score line n this Div. 2 A League Round 9 fixture secured top spot in the Div. 2 A League table.

Castletown 0-12 Moynalvey 4-8

As the saying goes goals win games and after just a quarter of an hour visitors Moynalvey held an eleven point lead, 3-4 to 0-2, having put three goals past the hosts with the first arriving after just 90 seconds when a poor kick out set up Shane Lenehan for the game’s first green flag.

Mark O’Sullivan sent over his side’s first point in the third minute; before home side Castletown found the range a minute later with a point from corner forward Barry Smith. Good build up play from Shane Browne, James Weldon & Mark O’Sullivan saw James O’Neill split the uprights with the outside of the boot in the 5th minute, which was followed a minute later by a sublime James Weldon point curled in between the posts from the right hand side.

Within the space of 120 seconds Moynalvey had registered another two goals, the first from Mark O’Sullivan when Shane Lenehan unselfishly laid on the chance for O’Sullivan and the second when James Weldon palmed home to the net from close range after Lenehan was once again instrumental in the lead up. Castletown’s Darren Finney and Moynalvey’s Mark O’Sullivan traded points to leave the score reading 3-4 to 0-2 in favour of the visitors at the quarter hour mark.

Moynalvey failed to score again before half time and the home side narrowed the deficit to six points at the break with points from Darren Finney (2), Kevin Ross and Barry Smith to leave the half time score reading 3-4 to 0-7 in favour of Moynalvey.

A brace of pointed frees from Castletown’s Kevin Ross & Darren Finney within five minutes of the restart had the deficit reduced to four points. A couple of Mark O’Sullivan frees along with a brace from play extended Moynalvey’s advantage once again to eight, 3-8 to 0-9 after 44 minutes.

Castletown points from Barry Smith & Tommy Smith reduced the margin to six before Shane Lenehan’s second goal put the nail in the coffin with seven minutes remaining. Castletown substitute James Finnerty sent over the game’s final score in the 54th minute to leave Moynalvey eight point winners on a 4-8 to 0-12 score line.

The win sees Moynalvey take top spot in the league table. Second in the table Rathkenny didn’t play this weekend as bereavement in the Ballinabrackey club saw a postponement of their round 9 fixture, an eagerly anticipated round 10 fixture awaits next Friday between Moynalvey & Rathkenny.

Best for Moynalvey were Robert Lawless, Cathal McCabe, Stephen Donoghue, Brian Harnan, Fearghal McCabe & Shane Lenehan.

Moynalvey: Conor Egan, Robert Lawless, Cathal McCabe, Shane Browne, Darren Brennan, Stephen Donoghue, Darragh Branigan, Donal Smith, Brian Harnan, James Weldon (1-1), Dan Treacy, Fearghal McCabe, Shane Lenehan (2-0), Mark O’Sullivan (1-6, 3f), James O’Neill (0-1).
