U12A Football, County Championship Semi Final

posted 13 May 2013, 13:42 by Moyle Rovers   [ updated 13 May 2013, 13:42 ]

On Friday 10th April, our U12A team played the County Football Semi Final against Durlas og in Clerihan.

Moyle Rovers were struck a blow before the throw in when two of our stalwarts, Harry Phelan and Ciaran Casey were ruled out due to illness and injury. However, this presented opportunities for others to come to the fore. Moyle Rovers played into a very strong breeze in the first half and after a shaky start, played themselves into the match with a goal and a point by Josh Power and Cian Walsh. However the Durlas Og team were physically strong and used the conditions to their advantage opening a 7 point lead at half time. Aidan Lonergan in goal kept Moyle Rovers in the match with some terrific saves and gave us hope for the second half. 

Moyle Rovers started the second half strongly and when Conor Og Ryan blasted a ball to the net half way thru the half, only a single score separated the teams. However a couple of easy misses and unnecessary fouls allowed Durlas Og lift the siege. The match could have gone either way with Moyle Rovers showing their fighting spirit right to the end. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be and a  goal for Durlas Og right at the final whistle decided the tie.  The Moyle Rovers team could be very proud of the effort they put in and we all know this team will contest many more finals in the future.

Team was : Aidan Lonergan, Anthony Phelan, Rian Kiely, Mike McGrath, Seamus O’Brien, Brian McKeown, Daniel Quigley, Brian O’Sullivan, Ross Gavin, Cian Maher, Conor Ryan, Josh Power and Brian O’Dea.

Final score Moyle Rovers 2-05 Durlas Og 3-09

On Monday 30th April, our U12b team played St Pats in the County Championship in Munroe.

This was our second time to play St Pats and after having suffered a defeat in the previous game, the Moyle Rovers team went all out to reverse that result.

The game was very competitive and both sides moved the ball quickly to their forwards.

St Pats began strongly and raced into a 2 goal lead but late in the half, goals by Hugh O’Sullivan and Adam Maher had the sides level at 2-01 each at half time.

A great point by Conor Og Ryan opened the scoring for Moyle Rovers in the second half.

Moyle Rovers defended extremely well with some great saves by Oisin Crowe with Luke Manning, Aidan Hickey and Aidan Lonergan keeping scores to a minimum.

Sarah O’Connor, Lucy Holihan and Louise Morris won valuable ball in midfield and worked well together to provide great scoring opportunities to our forwards.

Aaron Kiely as always was a tower of strength up front and kept Moyle Rovers in the game until the last minutes.

Unfortunately the bounce of the ball went against Moyle Rovers and 2 late goals from St Pats settled this tie.

However, if there was ever honour in defeat, this was it.

Final score Moyle Rovers 3-05 – St Pats 6-02

On Saturday last, our U12 A team played the South County Football Final against Clonmel Commercials in Clerihan.

Every member of the team put in a huge effort in the opening period.

Harry Phelan and Rian Kiely in defense showed the way with Ross Gavin, Brian McKeown and Anthony Phelan in midfield also putting in a huge effort.

Late in the opening half Ciaran Casey goaled with a great left footed strike and shortly after, a long range attempt by Brian McKeown evaded the keeper to give Moyle Rovers a half time lead of 2-3 to 0-2.

The second half started with a strong fight back by Commercials.

Moyle Rovers were ready and fought tooth and nail to maintain control at this vital time in the match.

Under 14 Match Reports  w/e 13th April 2014.


South Championship ‘C’ Quarter Final.

Our under 14 team played St Patrick’s in the quarter final of the South Championship in a wet and windy Cloneen on Thursday 11th April.Despite the poor conditions we played some very good football all over the pitch. Kieran Quirke made some fine saves in goals and David Bourke and Jake Fahey were solid in defence.

In the half back line, Sean Hackett, Jack Holohan 0-1 & Michael Cleary were in fine form. Brian Quirke & Gavin Byrne played well at midfield, moving the ball at pace into the forwards. Brian scored 1-1, with Gavin scoring an excellent point following a penetrating run through the St Pat’s defence.

In the forwards, Sean Cotter had excellent tally of 1-1 and Darragh Murphy and Jack Phelan both scored well taken goals. Aidan O’ Sullivan, James O’Donnell and Joey Devoy gave good displays of football.

However, we didn’t have it all our own way as St Patrick’s, who have a number of fine footballers  made a strong come-back in the second half, having trailed 3-1 to 1-2 at the interval. St Pat’s got two goals in this period, so we had to dig deep throughout  but our defence stood up very well overall with Michael Cleary, in particular, giving a ‘man of the match’ performance.

This was an excellent display of football by both teams, and at the final whistle Moyle Rovers were deserving winners on a score line of 4-4 to 3-3.

Under 14 Feile na nOg Hurling (South Quarter Final)

We travelled to Carrick on Suir on Saturday 12th to play Carrick Swans in the quarter final of the South Feile na nOg.

We played against a strong breeze in the first half but held our own in this period against the physically stronger Swans players. Following a goalmouth scramble Luke Delahunty struck the sliothar to the back of the net. Ben Ownes followed on with a point from a free and Darragh Bolger, having caught a high ball, took an excellent long range point.

In the second half, Carrick Swan upped their game with good displays of individual hurling and took their scores well. Cillian Crowe, Ben Ownes and Conor McGrath, put in a big effort around the middle of the park. Conor also shipped a heavy challenge late in the game but bounced back quickly. Sam Power worked manfully at centre back scoring two points; one from a free and one ‘65’.

We were still in with a shout with five minutes to go, but Carrick finished strongly to win by 3 points.

Final score Moyle Rovers 1-4 Carrick Swan 1-7.
