JUNIOR ‘B’ SIDE WIN SOUTH TITLE
On a very wintry afternoon we travelled to Goatenbridge on Saturday last to take on Cahir in the South Junior B Football Championship final.
Conditions were absolutely terrible, which kept scoring from both sides to a minimum.
Aidan McGrath scored two great points against the wind in the first half to help us stay a point of Cahir at half time. Moyle Rovers 0-2 Cahir 0-3.
Cahir opened the second half with a point while Aidan McGrath replied with a point.
It was in the 44th minute that the hard work and determination of Kevin O’Donnell resulted in a goal with the final touch coming from Kevin O’Donnell.
Cahir responded with a point from play to leave just a single point between the sides. Gamekeeper turned poacher Ciaran Kenrick then scored a final point from Rovers, while Cahir, battling hard against the wind, could only manage one more point from play.
At the final whistle we were crowned champions on a scoreline of Moyle Rovers 1-4 Cahir 0-6.
It was marvellous to see our great clubman Joe Mulcahy, sponsor of South Junior B Championship, present the cup to captain James Williams.
Well done to selectors and players on a great victory. Best of luck in the county championship.
Both our minor teams played their county semi-finals last Saturday in Monroe under lights.
First up were the B team who took on Arravale Rovers. Arravale scored an early goal while Rachael Browne responded with a goal for us. Arravale then struck for another goal and they were leading 2-3 to 1-1 when Aine Fitzgearld struck a good goal to close the gap. We led briefly before Arravale hit a third goal to leave the half-time score 2-4 to 3-4 in favour of Tipperary Town girls.
The second half was a challenge to which the girls rose to magnificently. They won great possession but the desire for goals would prove our undoing. We had plenty of chances and plenty of time but too often we took the wrong option seeking a goal when a point might have been a wiser option, not helped by in an in form Arravale keeper. Arravale tacked on some points and after a sustained period of pressure we had hauled the deficit back to two points. From here Arravale found renewed vigour and kicked on with some well taken points and a late goal to leave the final score Moyle Rovers 2-8 to Arravale 4-10.
Team: Bronagh McGrath, Sophie Delaney, Amy Norris, Abbie Kiely, Rosin Breen, Louise Norris, Rachael Timlin, Danni Di Ruzza(0-1f), Chloe Boland (0-1), Aileen Ryan, Rachael Browne (1-1), Rowena Dowling (0-1), Aine Fitzgearld (1-1), Emma Moore Kelly (0-3),Kellie Ryan. Substitutes; Sarah O’Dwyer Cathy O’Dwyer, Rachael Delahunty.
The A team then took to the field against Templemore. Playing with the wind we were slow to settle with some early misses. Templemore scored a goal against the run of play and suddenly our girls realised they were in a county semi-final. A pointed free and then a Cora Maher Goal had us back in the game. In-form Megan Shanahan added a point. Before halftime Evrena Everard made a good run and scored a goal and quickly followed with a point to send us in at half-time 2-5 to 1-3 in front.
We opened with two points from Rosin McGrath. The backs played magnificent as they dealt with the Templemore attacks. They neutralised the Templemore threat by being first out to the ball and turning defence into attack. The scores followed. Goals from Shania Dowling and Sarah Everard and some great points. Goalie Kristy Crotty Ryan saved a penalty late in the game to kill off the Templemore challenge
Final score Moyle Rovers 4-10 Templemore 1-5.
Team: Kristy Crotty Ryan, Derbhile Fitzgearld Hazel Shanahan, Laura Grace, Emma Cronin, Orla Burke, Shania Dowling, Aoife Power , Rosin McGrath(0-3), Evrena Everard (1-1), Sarah Everard (1-4,2f), Megan Shanahan,(0-2), Jenny Everard, Caroline Quirke (1-0), ) Cora Maher (1-1). Replacements. Sinead Cosgrave. Leann Ryan, Sarah McDermott, Ciara Ryan, Rachael Delahunty.
It was a very busy evening for the management team of Edmund Burke, Frances Ryan, Helen Cronin, and Gillian O’Brien with assistance from Mark Ryan.
We wish them all the best in the final against Brian Borus who have beaten Cahir in the other semi-final.
Well done to our club representatives who travelled to Mallow to take part in the intercounty under 16 Development squad Blitz. We had Sarah O’Dwyer, Jenny Everard, Rosin Breen, Roweena Dowling, Orla Burke.
Our minors travelled to Ballycahill on Sunday morning for a league game against Holycross. Sportingly we volunteered to evenly match Holycross who could only muster 11 players. We had a lot of tired bodies and were forced into two quick changes when Shannon Keating and Shania Dowling had to retire to the sideline.
Evrena Everard opened the scoring with a point. Caroline Quirke then had a goal and Rosin McGrath hit another to open a five point gap. Holycross then got a goal and we retired at half-time quite satisfied with our work and effort and in the lead 1-4 to 1-1.
We got a dream start to the second half when a number of players were involved before the referee deemed the ball over the goal line. Holycross then upped their game and our tired legs were fully tested. We were hit for 2-4 without reply. We were now chasing the game and came with renewed energy. Caroline Quirke then netted from close range and we now went in search of victory. We had a chance only to be denied by a very good save from the Holycross keeper. Beaten by a single point 3-4 to 3-5 there was nothing lost in defeat.
Team: Kate Delahunty, Shannon Keating, Shania Dowling, Aisling Deely, Zoe Farrell, Derbhile Fitzgerald, Rosin McGrath (Capt) (0-1), Danni di Ruzza, Kristy Crotty Ryan, Evrena Everard(1-3), Caroline Quirke(2-0), Rachael O’Dwyer, Rachael Browne, Sarah Everard.
