Moylagh pulled of the best result in the clubs history with the demolition of a Navan side who had already beat them in the first round of the championship.

Confidence was so high in the Moylagh camp from the semi final win over Boardsmill that no team would have beaten them Friday night in Navan.

In the end all that both set of supporters could do was admire the Moylagh style of hurling and brilliant scores taken by players such as William McGrath Owen Gilsnan Kevin Foley and Eana Brody.

The first twenty minutes were tight and at 2 points each it looked like it would be a tight game but then the Moylagh boys got to grips with the game and any early nerves disappeared as the north meath boys notched up a 1-7 to 0-3 lead with the goal a brilliant effort from full forward Paddy Rahill.

Moylagh started the second half just as they finished the first and William McGrath raised the first white flag to make it 1-08 to 0-3 and this was soon followed by Moylagh second goal again William doing the damage.

Some brilliant points followed Eana Brody Stephen Tierney and a wonder point from Sean Og Doyne as at the time he was playing with a broken tumb and broken bone in his hand. Sean Og was taken to hospital by ambulance after the game to Drogheda and will have a operation on his hand on sunday.

In the last few minutes Moylagh ran riot and William Mcgrath scored his second and Moylaghs third goal.

In the closing stages Navan were dismissed to 14 men and Moylagh introduced subs who all played a vital role in getting to the final .

It would be hard to pick out player who did not have a good game for Moylagh as every one of them including the subs worked brilliantly for each other.

Colm melia long puck outs was one of the features of the match and the covering done by the centre back and captain Eamon Boyle was brilliant.

Eana Brody again had a outstanding game and the running of the Gilsnan brothers Owen and Paddy was causing Navan problims throughout the game.

William McGrath was outstanding in the forward line and the number 15 scored some of the best scores ever seen in Navan.
