Final Score: Moylagh 0-05 Kilmainham 0-10
Notwithstanding the trying conditions on this wet and windy evening in Drumbaragh both teams served up a tense and exciting game.
After a tightly contested first half there was little to choose between the teams with Kilmainham 2 points ahead at the break. Kilmainham threatened to open up a sizeable gap at times but 2 frees from Willie McGrath and points from brothers Colm & Aengus Fanning kept Moylagh in touch. In spite of this good work Moylagh were reduced to 14 men for consecutive Championship games as Danny O’Growney was harshly sent off for a second yellow card just before the break.
Despite the being a man down Moylagh managed to create numerous opportunities in the second half but the vital scores eluded them. In what proved to be a low scoring second period Kilmainham registered 4 points to Peter Fox’s sole point for Moylagh and this proved enough to see them home.
Best for Moylagh were Tommy O’Reilly; Colm Fanning and Willie McGrath.
