GAA Juniors – The juniors played a very exciting draw in the final of the North Kerry Intermediate championship on Sunday last against Emmet’s. On a perfect day for football, both sides displayed great commitment and play moved from end to end. A well taken goal by Pascal Sweeney mid-way through the first half separated the sides at half time 1-4 to 0-4. Emmets upped the tempo in the second period and began to pick off their scores with great accuracy and with about ten minutes left led by four points and looked home and dried. Moyvane put the pressure on and pushed forward in an effort to get back into the game. When William Madden got his fist to a high centre the ball ended in the back of the net and a grandstand finish was on. Moyvane had a few good chances to equalise but with time running out Emmets looked like holding on but in the very last attack Paraigh Fitzmaurice got possession and with great accuracy sent the ball over the bar for a precious score. A draw was in fairness a good result but both sides will regret some chances that could have taken the title. All the players were heroes on the day and to our selectors also well done on a good day’s work.

Moyvane U/21 are playing Beale in Listowel on Sunday morning at 12 noon in the North Kerry Championship. All players are asked to be in good time for this match and lets hope they can get the right result.

Our U/13 were well beaten by Beale on Sunday last. The stronger Beale lads were always on top and won in the end on a score of Moyvane 1-7, Beale 3-11. Well done to all involved who put in a great effort all year. That just about wraps up our Juvenile football for the year.

Our seniors received a bye in the first round of the championship, so we must wait for the next round draw to know our quarter final opponents. More details next week.
