Moylagh 0-7   Clonard 0-6

Moylagh collected their 3rd win in the All County League Division 4 with this narrow win over Clonard in Moylagh.

Moylagh had their flags flying at half mast and a minute silence was observed on the passing of the late Brian Smyth.

In a low scoring first half, Clonard failed to convert their chances and Moylagh took advantage with a good opening score from play by Aengus Fanning followed by converted frees from Shane Brody and Thomas O’Reilly. The home team went in at the break 0-3 to 0-2 ahead.

Scores were hard to come by in the second half but Moylagh held on to withstand a late Clonard rally and finished with two more points on the board.

Moylagh backs stood strong and withstood anything that came their way with Nathan Doyle, Darren Gibney and Peter Fox showing best. Kieran Hannon, Thomas O’Reilly, Aengus Fanning and Brody were also in fine form.
