Moville Minors v Malin
Northern Board Division 2 Section 1 18.04.13

Malin travelled to Carrick Field in Moville on Friday evening for their Northern Board fixture against Moville minors in a game that would be a re-run of the pre-season challenge game that Malin won comfortably at home. Both teams sit mid-table in the Northern Board Division 2 Section 1 league with probably neither capable of reaching the qualifying spot at the top of the league currently occupied by a Burt team who won four of their five games. Moville had a squad of fifteen named but as Malin were short on numbers for this fixture it would be thirteen a side leaving two of the Moville starting line-up disappointed. The home team started brightest putting 7 points on the scoreboard from Connor Doherty, Ciaran Diver and Ciaran Moore without reply. Malin got on the scoreboard for the first time after 22 minutes, Connor Doherty got another point for the home team before Malin hit the back of the Moville net for a goal on the thirtieth minute. Ciaran Moore hit over the bar again leaving the half-time score Moville 0-09 Malin 1-01

Moville needed to avoid complacency in the second half and Malin came out after half time firing on all cylinders playing with the slope and moving the ball around the field very well. The visiting team scored two goals and a point with Moville only hitting over the bar once to leave just a solitary point between the two sides. The Moville boys finally settled and started playing some good football, one player from each side was sent off when things got a bit heated and they each received a second yellow card, so it was twelve vs twelve now. Points in the second half came from Tony McClenaghan, Josh Lafferty who netted a goal as well as a point, Ronan Doherty, Shane Skelly, Billy McCann and Pearce Parkinson. Pat Kelly came off the bench late in the game and netted an excellent goal to give the home team a convincing win. Final score Moville 3-16 Malin 4-05. The next game, and indeed the final game in this section of the Northern Board Minor League, will take place on Friday 23rd April at 7pm in Carrick Field, Moville against Red Hughs.
Tony McClenaghan wins the ball for Moville.
