The seniors had a very good win over Laune Rangers B on Saturday night in Clounmacon and this win keeps us well up the league table. Moyvane got off to a great start and were six points up before Laune Rangers got their first score a goal from a penalty. By the half time break the visitors had gone into a one point lead 2 – 2 to 0 – 7. Moyvane started the second half just the same as the first and had gone back into a four point lead inside ten minutes. Back came Laune Rangers and got within two points of our lads and once again the game was wide open. With the game in injury time and Moyvane hanging on Laune Rangers got through for a goal and it seemed our bad luck in this league would continue. From the kick out Moyvane secured possession and moved the ball upfield in a last do or die effort. The ball reached Bryan Stack and in a flash he buried the ball in the far corner of the net for the match winning goal. The final whistle sounded on the kick out and Moyvane had won on a score of 1 – 15 to 3 – 8. In fairness the Moyvane lads played great football and took some excellent points most of them from play. The loss of key players for one reason or another only helped to make the others graft all the harder and the tremendous effort put in by the entire team was heartening for all concerned. Our next game in the County league is on July 4 against Brosna and if we can reproduce this spirit we would do very well indeed.

Moyvane Juniors had a great win over St. Pats. in the Junior league last Friday and this win keeps the lads on track for the semi-finals. In a low scoring game Moyvane defended well and held on to win 0 – 6 to 0 – 3. On Friday they play Tarbert. The under-12s are playing their second phase games on Sunday evenings and should check with their trainers about their next game. The under-14s had a very tight win over Ballylongford/Asdee in the North Kerry league last week on a score of 1 – 6 to 0 – 8. This was a very enjoyable win for our lads and now should qualify for the semi-finals.
