A final quarter scoring surge saw Trim take the two points on offer in this Div. 2 B League opening round game played at St. Lomans Park on Saturday afternoon February 23rd.

Trim 5-14
Moynalvey 3-11

The strength of Trim's bench saw them overcome a seven point deficit to complete a remarkable sixteen point turnaround in the final quarter to run out nine point winners in this high scoring B League opener.

With nothing between the sides in the opening half, it was Moynalvey who opened up a seven point advantage midway through the second half. However Trim outscored the visitors 3-8 to 0-1 in the final fifteen minutes.

Trim corner forward Neil Heffernan opened the scoring, with Fearghal McCabe responding for Moynalvey. Then came the game's first goal courtesy of McCabe leaving it 1-1 to 0-1 after just three minutes.

Tim's scorer in chief Stephen Doyle scored his side's first goal in the sixth minute to draw the side’s level.

Moynalvey's Sean Duggan and Trim's Heffernan traded points to level matters for a second time, 1-2 apiece after nine minutes.

Moynalvey's James O'Neill converted a free for the first of his six points, with Robert Kenny responding for the home side. Trim then took the lead with full forward Stephen Doyle scoring his and his side's second goal.

Within two minutes the sides were level for a fourth time when Ciaran Harnan found the net for Moynalvey.

Points from Shaun Deering and James O'Neill handed Moynalvey a two point advantage, but once again it was that man Doyle who replied for Trim, leaving the minimum between the sides after 24 minutes, 2-5 to 2-4.

Moynalvey's O'Neill and Trim's Ciaran Joyce traded points before the half time whistle, leaving it 2-6 to 2-5 in favour of Moynalvey at the break.

Within three minutes of the restart Joyce pointed again to leave the sides level for a fifth time.

Then Moynalvey's purple patch saw them hit 1-3 without reply to take a seven point lead, 1-1 from Fearghal McCabe and 0-2 from James O'Neill.

But then the strength of Trim's bench and the move of Stephen Doyle to centre forward to curtail the influence of Moynalvey's impressive centre back Willie Mahady saw them outscore Moynalvey 3-8 to 0-1 in the final 15 minutes to run out comfortable winners.

David Brennan, Adam Rooney, David Donoghue, Conor Egan, Robert Keane, William Mahady, Darragh Branigan, Sean Duggan (0-1), Conor Shirren, Eoghan Murphy, Fearghal McCabe (2-3), Johnny Carey, Shaun Deering (0-1), James O'Neill (0-6, 4f), Ciaran Harnan (1-0).
Subs: Andrew Jackson for Deering, Paul Brennan for McCabe.
