On Saturday last our U12 A & B were participating in the county final
of the end games in Littleton.
It was a wonderful day of hurling for all involved.
Our U12”A” took on Kildangan first in what was an exciting game of
hurling.  With scores from Gavin Byrne, Brian Lacey, Daniel Quigley,
Conor McGrath, Ben Owens & Brian Quirke.  We won on a scoreline of
Moyle Rovers 3-3 Kildangan 3-2.  We then faced Boherlahan in the Semi
Final. This was yet again another very close contest.  Our scorers for
this game were Ben Owens, Brian Lacey & Diarmuid Mulcahy, but it was a
last minute goal for Boherlahan that bet us.  Final score Moyle Rovers
2-2 Boherlahan 2-3.  U12 “A” panel of players were: Gavin Byrne, Ross
Gavin, Brian Lacey, Diarmuid Mulcahy, Jack Phelan, Daniel Quigley,
Kieran Quirke, Sean Cotter, Jack Holohan, Conor McGrath, Ben Owens,
Josh Power, Brian Quirke, Conor Og Ryan.  Well done to all the boys.

Our U12 “B” took on Lorrha in their first game.  There was very little
between the sides but Anthony Phelan who scored 1-3 with Cian Walsh
added a further point, to come away with a great win.  Final Score
Moyle Rovers 1-4 Lorrha 0-4.   Then now faced Thurles Gael in the semi
final,  Our scoring ability was a little more widespread in this game
with scores from Ciaran Casey, Joe Devoy, Sean Hackett & Anthony
Phelan.  Again winning by 3 points.  Final score Moyle Rovers 2-3
Thurles Gaels 0-6.  It was back to a battle of the South for the
county final as their apponents were neighbours Clonmel Og.  This was
a great game of hurling with nothing between the sides throughout the
game.  It was Anthony Phelan who scored out two points but Clonmel Og
managed to score that vital third point.  Final Score Moyle Rovers 0-2
Clonmel Og 0-3.  U12 “B” panel: Rian Bolton, Michael Cleary, Jake
Fahey, Aaron Kiely, Mike McGrath, Seamas O Brien, Brian O’Sullivan,
Harry Phelan, Adam Maher, Ciaran Casey, Joe Devoy, Sean Hackett, Aidan
Lonergan, Brian McKeown , Brian O Dea, Anthony Phelan & Cian Walsh.
Well done to all the boys.

On Saturday evening our attention then turn to our Intermediate
Hurlers.  The South Semi Final against St Marys in Cahir.  St Marys
got off to a good start scoring two unanswered point but as the first
half went on we battled on and managed to go in level at half time 0-7
each.   The team scored point for point until the 11th Minute of the
second half, when points from Sean Carey (free), Peter Acheson &
Declan Browne gave us a three point lead with 9 minutes left to play.
It all went wrong from there, as St Marys managed to score 5
unanswered point to win in the closing minutes on a final scoreline of
Moyle Rovers 0-13 St Marys 0-15.


Best of Luck to Sean Carey & Tipperary Intermediate Hurlers who take
on Kilkenny in the All Ireland Final in Semple Stadium next Saturday
1st September at 6-30pm.

The club wishes John Shanahan a speedy recovery after his recent injuries

The half time score was 0-7 to 0-2. On the resumption Moyle Rovers began renewed vigour and had two points from what were really two goal chances.Cappawhite responded with a point and then a goal. The Moyle Rovers ladies then found themselves with an uphill battle being ten points behind. They responded magnificently and with  great determination they  were rewarded with two super goals in the space of two minutes by Gillain O'Brien.Nancy Ferris then added a point following a  great run by Marie Kelly and then  another point to leave just two points between the teams. A relieved Cappawhite had the last two points of the game to leave the score 1-13 to 2-6.
