Cordal v Moyvane: Division 5 Senior Football League Round 9

Cordal seniors were in Moyvane last Sunday to play their Seniors in Cordal’s ninth County League game of the year.

The hot and sunny day wasn’t the only thing to make both teams sweat as it was well-known a mighty clash of division five titans was in store with both teams only two points away from each other on the league table. Cordal were further driven in their desire to keep the number one position on the Division 5 Table.

Intense to Start

The game was intense to start with and Moyvane certainly put Cordal to their paces but by the second half Cordal’s momentum increased whilst Moyvane slipped further. The final score put Cordal on top with a respectable five point lead at 0-18 to Moyvane’s 0-13.

The first half was quick to begin, a point was scored only moments in for Moyvane by Colin Enright. Cordal’s Philip Griffin was on the chase and booted the ball over the goals a minute later. The ball was in Moyvane’s hands again when Shane Stack scored a point in the 6th minute. Cordal added another point in the seventh minute scored by Brian Reidy.

Three Great Points

A Moyvane wide in the 11th minute spurred them on to kick three great points over the bar in a row, two of these in the same minute led to Cordal shaking up their defenceultimately slowing Moyvane down later in the game. Brian Reidy gave a stellar second quarter performance scoring trio of points, one after the other. Cordal kept up the attack with five more points before Moyvane was to threaten the Cordal goals again. Moyvane struck three points over the bar, two from Timmy Noonan and the last from a free. Cordal only held a narrow one point lead at 0-09 to Moyane’s 0-08. The tight half left it all to play for in the second half.

Use of Possession

The second half began with a Moyvane wide, Cordal then quickly made use of possession and scored five points in a row. Moyvane almost scored a goal after a Cordal slip of the ball but the boys in Blue and Gold were spared the change of fortunes. Moyvane’s Martin Stack and Donal Leahy kept their team in the game adding two points in the 19th and 20th minute. Cordal’s Philip O’Connor and Kieran O’Donoghue kept the Cordal machine ticking with three points scored between them in the next few minutes.

Resurgence of Strength

Moyvane had a resurgence of strength in the last moments of the game scoring three points, with Martin Stack being the last scorer of the game knocking a point over the bar before the ref blew the whistle.

Cordal had ensured their ninth win of the SFL with a five point lead at 0-18 to Moyvane’s 0-13. Well done lads. What a great team to watch in motion. Here’s hoping we do the ten!
