Ballivor 0-7
Moynalvey 4-11

Following a double booking of originally appointed referee Martin Ennis this game threw in 30 minutes late, with Jason Plunkett stepping in at the last minute to take control of the game.

Five months on from round one of the competition Moynalvey backed up the first round victory over Oldcastle with a comfortable second round win over Ballivor.

Both sides lined out with 14 men as that’s all that was available to Moynalvey.

It was the home side who opened the brightest, scoring three points without reply in the opening thirteen minutes.

Following plenty of wides and balls dropped short Moynalvey eventually got their opening score in the 18th minute, a goal from the boot of midfielder Donal Smith to put the sides level for the first and only time.

Ballivor failed to score again in the first half and a further 1-4 from Moynalvey, Craig Gilsenan (2), Conor Quinn, Paul Corcoran and the goal coming from Shaun Deering left Moynalvey seven points to the good at half time, 2-4 to 0-3.

After the break it was more of the same from Moynalvey who outscored Ballivor 2-7 to 0-4 in the second half for a comfortable 4-11 to 0-7 win.
