Senior B Championship Semi Final
Moyle Rovers 2-11
Moyle Rovers played with the aid of the wind in the first half and at times looked like pulling away from a young Fethard team who struggled with Moyle Rovers physicality and pace. While Fethard only got four scores in the first half the 2 goals they scored were vital to keeping the margin down to 7 points at half time, Moyle Rovers 2-09 Fethard 2-02.
The second half began with Fethard slowly getting to the pace of the game and they were getting their scores easier with the wind at their backs and by the water break Moyle Rovers were ahead by 4 points. At this stage the game could have gone to either team but an improving Fethard defence who kept Moyle Rovers to 0-02 in the 2nd half and their forwards who kept going at the Moyle Rovers defence and were rewarded on the scoreboard to run out winners by 3 points on a scoreline of Fethard 4-09 Moyle Rovers 2-11.

On the resumption Galtee’s aided now by a strong wind pushed further ahead and a golden goal by Fiona Touhy put Galtees firmly in the driving seat. A goal from Boherlahan’s Aine O’Dwyer kept them in it but points from Kate Flannery and Alison Lonergan and a second goal from Alisongoal put Galtees 2-17 to Boherlahan’s 1-10. Credit to Boherlahan though they fought on scoring two further goals one each from Aliza Mazola and Orla O’Dwyer.
