Neighbours condemn Moynalvey to fourth A League loss

E-mail Print PDF

Moynalvey’s short trip to neighbours Summerhill on Sunday afternoon resulted in their fourth loss from five outings in the Div. 1 A League to date.

Summerhill 5-6
Moynalvey 1-4

On a windy day where scores were always going to be hard to come by, it was Summerhill’s greater ability to get goals that proved the difference.

Summerhill were full value for their 14 point win, as when playing against the difficult swirling conditions in the first half they still managed a four point half time lead.

Moynalvey failed to trouble the score board keeper at all while playing into the wind in the second half, while Summerhill scored 2-4 in that period.

The wind proved a hindrance to both sides early on as it was the 13th minute before any score came, that being a Sean Dalton goal.

Moynalvey replied a minute later with a James Weldon free, while his free taking counterpart Liam Shaw opened his account in the 16th minute. A David Larkin point soon after left it 1-2 to 0-1 in favour of the home side.

Three Moynalvey scores, two points from Stephen Donoghue either side of a James Weldon goal gave Moynalvey the lead for the first and only time in the game, 1-3 to 1-2 with 23 minutes gone.

Two more goals for the home side from Conor Lyons and Liam Shaw either side of another Stephen Donoghue point left the half time score 3-2 to 1-4 in favour of the Summerhill.

Chasing a four point half time deficit was never going to be easy playing against the tricky wind, but not to score at all in the second half meant attaining anything from the game was impossible for Moynalvey.

With the wind at their backs Summerhill kicked on to hit 2-4 in the second half to deservedly wrap up the two points on offer, which rarely looked in doubt throughout.

Points from David Larkin, Liam Shaw, Michael Byrne and Padhraig Geraghty before two late goals from Conor Lyons and Sean Dalton gave Declan McCabe's outfit a comfortable win.

Best for Moynalvey were Darren Brennan, Robert Lawless and Stephen Donoghue.

Conor Egan, Darren Brennan, Robert Lawless, Darragh Branigan, David Donoghue, Brian Harnan, Conor Shirren, Stephen Donoghue (0-3), Donal Smith, Shane Lenehan, Cathal McCabe, Padraig Kelly, James Weldon (1-1, 1f), Sean Duggan, Ciaran Harnan.
Subs: Padraic Harnan for Shirren, James Kelly for C. Harnan, Scott Tuite for Lenehan.
