Moyle Rovers Club Notes - 8th May 2017   09/05/2017

Ladies Football - Our U16's went to a sunny Sean Treacy Park in Tipperary Town on Sunday last for the County final against a strong and well organised Moyne Templetuohy side. Throw in was at 12 noon and in the first minute Eve Ryan took a fall and our first aider Mairead was quick into action. Moyne Templetuohy took early control and soon had a penalty which they slotted away. This rattled our players and Moyne Templetuohy kept the pressure on and managed to get two more goals and a point. We found ourselves ten points behind having not played to our potential. Kate Moore moved to centre field and neutralised their advantage whilst building our own attacks, leading to Sarah O'Connor getting the first of her three goals. Once Sarah's goal went in, all of our players from our goalie Hannah Mallekoote up to the forwards stepped up a gear. Now we were getting in tackles in and playing some lovely one two's which led to Sarah getting two more goals (one from a free). Then just before half time Louise Norris slotted over the bar to level things up.

 

The second half started and our purple patch continued. By the 43rd minute with the help of tireless and hard work from our forwards Lucy Holohan, Ellen Buckley and Dearbhla McDonagh, laying off some lovely passes to Louise and Sarah, we found ourselves in front by two points. Moyne Templetuohy then drew level. This game needed a bit of magic to separate the two sides and that came in the 48th minute with a brilliant bit of individual skill from Triona Ryan who received the ball on the halfway line, turned and took on her player, soloed and kept going until she blasted the ball into the back of the net to a tremendous roar. This made it 4-4 to 3-4 in Rovers favour. On came sub Mia Duggan to help out the forwards. Now it was back against the wall stuff as Moyne Templetuohy piled on the pressure but with brave defence work from the back line of Claire Moylan, Grace Quinn and Tara McGrath and superb work from Ava Collins, Michelle Cronin, Robyn Tynan, Louise Norris and the ever running of Kate and Eve in centre field, they managed to dig deep and hold out Moyne Templetuohy. Moyle Rovers won with a scoreline of 4-4 to 3-6.  A well-deserved result for a hardworking group of girls and their mentors.
