Moyvane GAA under 13 were defeated by Beale in the North Kerry championship on Sunday after a great game. Heavy overnight rain made conditions a little slippery but we were treated to a rousing match. Two goals in the final quarter sealed the game for Beale but in fairness Moyvane were unlucky to hit the goal post on two occasions in the second half. Final score Beale 2-5 : Moyvane 0-5.
