IHC: Dunderry 1-16 Moylagh 1-12

E-mail Print PDF

Despite the best efforts of Willy McGrath Moylagh went down to Dunderry in this I.H.C game in Kildalkey on Sunday morning.

In a fiercely contested game Moylagh found themselves in arrears 1-10 to 1-04 at half time.The second half was played at a frantic pace as both sides gave it their all.

Moylagh have been plagued with injury all season and had to field without a number of regulars and even had to call on Sean Og Doyne who was ruled out before the game with a groin injury to come on for Cieran Hannon the Moylagh goalkeeper who picked up a hand injury after about 10 minutes, and Doyne had a fine game clearing his line many times under pressure.

John White again was solid in the full back line as was centre back Eamon Boyle before picking up his second yellow card with about 10 minutes left.

Midfielder Stephen Tierney was unlucky to hit the crossbar in the dying minutes after a brilliant run from midfield.

Paddy Gilsenan again had a great game setting up many attacks and also covering to help his back lines when needed.

But it was Willy who stole the show once again .

The Moylagh full forward scored 1-11 despite being marked by two Dunderry defenders for most of the game.

And for the second game on the trot one of the points came from a massive sideline cut about 30 yards out.

Moylagh are now out of the championship but considering it was our first year intermediate we are happy with the progress with fantastic 2 wins

And as captain Jimmy Tuite stated after the game we are a match for most intermediate teams and next year he wants a championship quarter final at least and the league title


Moylagh: C Hannon, J Tuite, C Melia, J White, Phil Grall, E Boyle, Paddy Grall [0-01], O Gilsenan, S Tierney, P Gilsenan, P Rahill, C Foley, N McNellis, Willy McGrath [ 1-11], S Peyton

Subs S Og Doyne for Hannon, C Clinton for Peyton. O Melia for McNellis

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.

Moylagh v Kilmessan IHC [played in Trim on 12/07/2014]

E-mail Print PDF

Moylagh  made history by winning their first Intermediate Hurling match  in the clubs history. The Junior champions of last year turned on the style and the return of Shane Nolan from Canada  gave the team a timely boost as two regulars Eana Brody and  Kevin Foley were ruled out with injury before the game.

Kilmessan  started  brightly and were four points up before two brilliant goals from Sean Og Doyne got the Moylagh nerves settled.

Moylagh dominated the first half and despite some poor finishing went in  3-06 to 0-09 in front at half time against a stiff breeze.

The second half started with Moylagh dominating  with points from Willy McGrath ,Paddy Rahill and Owen Gilsenan but as the half went on Kilmessan came more into the game but Moyalgh came back with good points from Shane Nolan , Doyne , Rahill and a brilliant long range point from Philip Grall who had a good game in the   number 5 position. Kilmessan  in the end scored two goals but the boys in green held out for a good win and can look forward to the next round against Donaghmore Ashbourne with some confidence.

Shane Nolan,Willy McGrath and John White stood out in a solid team performance.
