Moyvane seniors GAA relinquished their North Kerry crown on Sunday last when they were well beaten by a more determined St. Senan’s side. Conditions were very good for the game with the light breeze having little effect on proceeding. St. Senan’s started well and were four points to no score up after about 20 mins. It took Moyvane almost 22 mins. to register their first point from Eddie Bowler. That seemed to spur them on and at half-time they had reduced the arrears to two points 0 – 5, to 0 – 3. When it looked like that Moyvane would get the upper hand it was St. Senan’s who dug in and raised their game. The vital score came mid-way the second half when in a sweeping move upfield wing forward Adrian Fitzmaurice finished to the net for a capital score. That score put daylight between the sides and despite strong pressure from Moyvane right to the end St. Senan’s had booked their place in the final against Ballylongford. Moyvane played their hearts out but on the day they were well beaten by a better team. Well done to all involved as Moyvane had a great year already capturing the North Kerry league title. St. Senan’s meet Ballylongford this Saturday at Tarbert, 2 p.m.
