E-mail Print PDF


Venue: Trim
Result: Moylagh 0-11 Dunsany 3-05
3 opportunist goals by Dunsany were the difference in this hard fought Junior Championship first round clash in Trim.
Playing against the wind in the first half Moylagh showed well racking up 6 points to Dunsany’s 1. However a goal mid-way through the half kept Dunsany in touch with the half time score of Moylagh 0-6 to Dunsany 1-1.
Moylagh suffered a blow early in the half as Eamon Boyle was shown a red card in spite of this they reacted well and raced into a 5 point lead with about 15 minutes to go. However Dunsany began to turn the tables and a second goal coupled with the man advantage saw them draw level in the closing minutes. A superb penalty save from Niall McNeilis looked to have given Moylagh a lift in the closing moments but Dunsany had the last say as they struck with a third and decisive goal late on to see them home by three points.
Despite the loss Moylagh put in a good team performance and can build on this for later in season. Best for Moylagh were Peter Fox; Danny O’Growney and Willie McGrath

Dunsany and Moylagh Share the spoils.
Full time score: Dunsany 1-8 to Moylagh 2-5
The blustery and wet conditions in Dunsany contributed to a contest that lived up to the clichéd game of two halves on Saturday afternoon.
Aided by the elements in the first half Moylagh raced into a 2-2 to 0-0 lead thanks to 1-2 from Willie McGrath and another goal from Aengus Fanning. Dunsany stemmed the tide mid-way through the half; striking back with 1-2 of their own. However Moylagh once again gained ascendancy in the lead up to the interval with 2 points from Eanna Brody leaving the half-time score at Dunsany 1-2; Moylagh 2-4
The tables were turned in the second half with Dunsany putting Moylagh under the cosh for long periods of the half. 6 unanswered points from the home side left them a point to the good as the game entered its closing stages. Moylagh dug deep however and a Willie McGrath point levelled the sides with about 5 minutes remaining. Both sides had chances late on to snatch victory however the game ended level at Dunsany 1-8 to Moylagh 2-5. Overall a fair result for both teams that whets the appetite for their first round Junior Championship clash in around a months time.
