Clerihan U16’s V Moyle Rovers
We played Moyle Rovers in the third round of the championship in Monroe Park on Thursday night last, We got off to a great start with a goal from James Maher and a well taken point from Rhys McMorrow in the first five minutes.
Clerihan started to dominate in most areas of the field and used the ball cleverly. Joe Ryan scored our second goal and points from Danny Hogan, Rory Maher, and Sean Hahessy had us well in command heading for the break. Moyle rovers opened their account with a well take point and followed it up with a great goal to stay in contention, Just before the break Andrew O Regan bagged our third goal to leave the score 3-4 to 1-1 at half time.
We started the second half where we left off with two brilliant points from Rory Maher and one from Rhys McMorrow. Matthew Ryan replaced Joe Ryan and was quick to make his mark with a point from close range. From the kick out Moyle Rovers move the ball quickly up the field and Clerihan backs got caught off their guard and Rovers netted their second goal. Again Clerihan responded well with a second point from Danny Hogan and a goal from the hard working Arron Lawrence. The home side scored a consolation goal but this was cancelled out with our fifth goal from Luke Hyland.
As a team we worked very hard but it goes without saying some worked harder than others, while our forwards clocked up a nice score our defenders were very busy. Andrew O Donnell, Adam Fahy and Sean Hahessy who played very well. This was a great results over a great Club like Moyle Rovers and we will cherish a victory any time we meet.
Well done to all who took part but remember lads we have nothing won yet.
