Moville v Letterkenny Gaels 02.09.13

Moville senior men recorded hard earned but well deserved win away to Letterkenny Gaels on Saturday night.
Having won the toss Moville opted to play with the wind in the first half. The first point of the game came in the third minute from Danny Murphy following a mazy run. This was followed in the ninth minute by a long range point from Nigel McMonagle who was causing the Letterkenny Gaels all sorts of problems with his movement. Danny Murphy added his second point and Moville’s third a minute later with a well taken score from an acute angle. Directly from the resulting kick out Malachy Mc Dermott rose high to superbly field the ball; and with a quick look up, launched a shot from all of 60 metres that sailed between the posts. Oran McDermott added a free on the sixteenth minute before Letterkenny Gaels got their first score of the evening in the eighteenth minute with a free from thirty metres. There followed a period of ten minutes without any score before Letterkenny player Conor McBrearty rounded his Moville marker and shot goal wards and was a little fortunate to see the ball drop in over Moville keeper, James Harkin’s head into the back of the net. Oran Mc Dermott added a further free in the 29th minute to leave the half time score 0-07 to 1-01.

Letterkenny Gaels opened the brighter and added the first point of the second half with a free in the 34th minute. Oran McDermott then added his third on 37 minutes after winning a long ball in and turning sharply to send the ball between the posts. Letterkenny Gaels responded immediately with another free on the 38th minute. Ciaran Diver pointed after a good build up in the 41st minute and Jack Keys scored the point of the day in 44th minute after a lung bursting run from the full back line. Letterkenny Gaels then added three unanswered points in the 45th, 48th and 52nd minutes to leave just two points between the teams. Moville quickly settled with Malachy Mc Dermott’s second point after good work by Seamus Hegarty and Danny Murpny. Oran McDermott added his fifth and Moville’s lucky thirteenth in the 61st minute to close out the game and leave the final score 0-13 to 1-06. This was Moville’s eighth league win in succession and now leaves them very much in the shake up for the league and the play-off positions with six games remaining

Turning Point: Moville were always ahead in this game. Jack Keys point in the 44th minute give them a 5 point lead and although Letterkenny Gaels tried hard they could not bridge that gap.

Player of the match: Conor Mc Brearty of Letterkenny Gaels caught the eye with his strong running. For Moville, veteran keeper, James Harkin was very accurate with his kick outs; Enda Faulker was superb at centre half forward, stemming all the attacks that came his way and getting forward at every opportunity. The player of the Match goes to Oran Mc Dermott; his movement and demanding of the ball was excellent and with three scores from four attempts from the dead ball and a further two from play giving him five in total, he was the stand out player.
