MOYVANE/ TARBERT 2-7 BALLYMACELLIGOTT 0-15
Our first minor Co League game was away to Moyvane /Tarbert last Saturday evening. The pitch was somewhat heavy but at least the sun shone. A fine display by Tomas O Connor scoring 7 points in total (5 from play ) was one of the main reasons for this victory. We got off to a poor start and were 1-2 to no score down after 5 minutes. Ballymac came more into the game but may have been better advised taking points rather than going for goals. The home side got another point before 3 points by Tomas gave us a grip in the game. A fantastic point by Darrragh Regan from almost the sideline narrowed the lead to 2 points. Robert O Dowd pointed for us and Moyvane pointed from a free. Three more points by Tomas and one from Michael Hoare put us 2 points up ( 0-9 to 1-4 ) at half time. On the restart Moyvane got two quick points with Robert pointing for us from a Michael Hoare pass. Darragh Regan, Liam O Malley and Tomas all pointed for us but Moyvane broke through for a goal to cut our lead to a point with 10 minutes left. D Regan pointed for us and the home side also pointed. Keelan brought off a fine interception before running over half the length of the field and pointing a fantastic score to win a tight game. Eddie Rogers, Micheal Reidy and Josh O Keeffe worked hard in defence with Eoin and Liam O,Malley also in fine form.
