B League Division 2 – Round 5

Moynalvey set off at a frantic pace in yesterday evening’s B League Division 2 match in Skryne and lead by 1-02 to 0-00 with only 5 minutes on the clock. The goal was rather fortuitous as a pointed effort from Moynalvey rebounded off the Skryne crossbar to a Moynalvey attacker who was quickest to respond and he bundled the ball into the net. Kevin O’Riordan,  Jason Fox(0-3) and Niall Lenehan were all on target for Skryne in the first half, but Moynalvey found it easier to get scores and clocked up a tally of  1-10 to Skryne’s 0-05 as the half-time whistle sounded.

Two early second half points from Allan Carty and a brilliant goal from Kevin O’Riordan who got on the end of a good team move to fire past the Moynalvey keeper saw the gap narrowed to only two points. It looked like ‘game on’, but Moynalvey responded with two quick points to stave off any ideas of a Skryne comeback. Two further points from Carty and O’Riordan again saw the gap narrowed to two again, but Moynalvey seemed to be able to keep Skryne at arms length all evening and although Skryne threatened in the latter stages of the game as they pressed harder in search of scores, it was Moynalvey who found the scores and finished the scoring with three points in last ten minutes while Skryne struggled to find the goal that would have given them a chance to overhaul the visitors. Final score: Skryne 1-09, Moynalvey 1-14.
