ONeills Mvey 2 removebg preview 1Moynalvey picked up their first win in the A League with a three-point win over Curraha on a 0-12 to 1-6 score line at Kilmore Park Moynalvey on Tuesday evening April 26th.

Moynalvey 0-12
Curraha 1-6

At the fifth attempt Moynalvey picked up their first win of the 2022 A League when going one better than last week’s draw with Dunderry to pick up the two points on offer here, lifting them a couple of places up the Div. 1B table.

Curraha almost found the Moynalvey net as early as ninety seconds into the game when Sean Keogh was denied by Moynalvey 'Keeper Chris O'Malley. 

But Curraha did open the scoring through Conor Moriarty in the seventh minute, with Moynalvey midfielder Donal Smith opening his side’s scoring three minutes later.

Moynalvey lost corner forward David McLoughlin to injury in the ninth minute and was replaced by David Donoghue.  

A Ciaran Harnan free followed by a Vinny Walsh point having been set up by a quick free by Ciaran Harnan to Darren Brennan gave Moynalvey the lead, 0-3 to 0-1 after 20 minutes and the home side weren’t headed from there on.

Curraha points from Andrew Coyle and Conor Moriarty either side of a Donal Smith point for Moynalvey after a Sean Duggan dispossession allowed Vinny Walsh to flick the ball to Smith who lofted over with his left boot, leaving the score board read 0-4 to 0-3 after 26 minutes.

Anthony Forde and Conor Moriarty traded points, before Moriarty levelled matters for just the second time, 0-5 to 0-5 in the 33rd minute.

A minute later Moynalvey midfielder Darren Brennan clipped over a point to give the home side a one-point advantage at half time, 0-6 to 0-5.

The first four scores of the second half went the way of the maroon and white side, with Fearghal McCabe and Conor Shirren firing over points within ninety seconds of the restart. A Sean Duggan point and a second for Fearghal McCabe following a pinpoint pass from Darren Brennan left it double scores 0-10 to 0-5 at the three-quarter hour mark.

Curraha’s first score of the second half came in the 50th minute when substitute Gavin Coyle drifted in unmarked behind the Moynalvey defence to slam the ball past Moynalvey goalkeeper Chris O’Malley, leaving just two between the sides.

Moynalvey’s response to the goal was almost immediate with a close-range Ciaran Harnan free after Sean Duggan was bundled over, putting three between the sides again with 10 minutes remaining.

The next score didn’t come until 30 seconds of normal time remained which went the way of the visitors with Sean Keogh pointing, leaving it 0-11 to 1-6.

Four minutes into added time a Vinny Walsh point sealed a much-needed win for John Donoghue’s Moynalvey side.

The Moynalvey scoring spread across eight different players with good performances from Cathal McCabe, Donal Smith, Fearghal McCabe, Conor Shirren and Vinny Walsh.

Round six sees Moynalvey make the long journey to Oldcastle next Tuesday evening 3rd May.

Chris O’Malley, Charlie McCormack, Conor Harnan, Darragh Branigan, Anthony Forde (0-1), Cathal McCabe, Brian O’Reilly, Darren Brennan (0-1), Donal Smith (0-2), Fearghal McCabe (0-2), Ciaran Harnan (0-2, 2f), Conor Shirren (0-1), Vinny Walsh (0-2), Sean Duggan (0-1), David McLoughlin.
