Moylagh blew the Intermiedate Hurling group A wide open with a great team effort against hot favourites Donaghmore/Ashbourne in Dunderry on Sunday afternoon. Playing with the wind in the first half Moylagh led by a point 1-08 to 1-07 with Paddy Gilsenan getting the all important goal.
The second half started well for Moylagh and a couple of points from Willy McGrath saw the north Meath men open up a small gap.
The highlights of the game were a brilliant sideline cut from McGrath that split the posts and the saving of two penalties by Moylagh one of which was the last puck of the game. Best for Moylagh were John White, Jimmy Tuite, Paddy Gilsenan and Willy McGrath and also Ciaran Hannon in goals had a solid game.
In fairness everyone on the team stepped up to the mark and gave their all in a tough game.
Donaghmore Ashbourne 1-12.
