Moylagh  recorded  their first league win of the year in this entertaining game played in Moylagh on Saturday evening.

Having won the toss Moylagh played with the wind in the first half and opened up a  2-05 to 0-3  halftime lead.
Two well taken goals from Stephen Tierney and Paddy Grall  set Moylagh on their way and also Paddy Rahill was causing the Rathmoylan fullback line all sorts of problims in the first half hour.
Moylagh knew at half  time that Rathmoylan would have a good go in the second half but it was the boys in green who got those all important early  scores through Eanna Brody ,Paddy Rahill and Colm O Shea.
Rathmoylan did find the Moylagh net but the full back line of   Jimmy Tuite  Philip Grall and  John White did a fine job in keeping the Rathmoylan forwards  out.
This  was a good all round team display from the current Meath Junior Champions with Colm Melia solid in goals captain Jimmy Tuite and  half back Cieran Foley in excellent form. Midfield pair of Owen Gilsnan and  Eanna Brody  again were dominent. In the forwards Paddy Grall , Stephen Tierney and Paddy Rahill were on top form for the whole game.
