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
