The seniors lost to Firies in the County Intermediate championship on Saturday night last in Moyvane. The return of 0-4 points for an hour’s work shows just how well the forwards were held. We did miss a few scoring chances from frees but at no stage did we look like getting through for a goal. The backs were solid enough and mid-field broke even despite the presence of Donal Daly but the lack of punch up front cost dearly. Final score Firies 0-8 Moyvane 0-4. The next game is against Waterville on weekend May 5 in Waterville.
