Under 16: Moyvane had a tremendous win in the final of the North Kerry championship against old rivals Duagh. This game had everything, well taken scores, tight defending, and a very exciting finish. Moyvane were slow to settle and it was Duagh that took their scores early in the game. As half time approached Moyvane came back into the game with well taken points by Trevor Keane, Kevin Stack and Gary Keane. William Madden and Brian Stack were doing well at mid-field and Sean Lynch was doing well at centre-back. However Duagh were proving hard to break down. With about 15 minutes to go Moyvane’s fitness and match practice came to the fore and they got well on top and added points from Brian Stack and Liam Kennelly as well as a brilliant goal from William Madden to clinch victory. Paudie Keane is team trainer.

Under 12: Moyvane had a great win over Asdee in the final of the North Kerry championship on Sunday morning in Tarbert. Scores were very hard to come by with both defences well on top. Moyvane were first to score with a point from Patrick Curtin, but Asdee were soon level with an Eoin Kennedy point. Moyvane started to get on top at mid-field with Cal Flynn and Myles Kearney and with Mark Mulvihill keeping danger man Eoin Kennedy well in check Moyvane went on to led at half-time by 0-4 to 0-2. At the start of the second half Asdee soon put on the pressure and went ahead with a well taken goal. With the breeze in their favour Asdee looked to have the game there for the taking but Moyvane scored two points to reduce the lead to one point. Then came the score that was to prove crucial for Moyvane when, after a great move up field, Gerard Kennelly passed a great ball to the in-rushing Patrick Curtin who finished in tremendous style to the Asdee net. Asdee tried for all their worth but time ran out on them and the Moyvane lads were celebrating at the end on a score of Moyvane 1-6 to Asdee 1-5. All the Moyvane players were stars but none more than Mark Mulvihill who had the hard job of trying to keep tabs on Asdee top scorer Eoin Kennedy and Patrick Curtin who accounted for all of Moyvane’s scores. Jerry Mulvihill, Eddie Joe Mulvihill, and Teddy Keane worked with the team all year.
