Moyvane exited the North Kerry championship last Sunday in Ballybunion at the hands of St Senans. It was a game of two halves. In the first half St Senans led by 0-4 to 0-1 after 15 minutes, and had stretch their lead to six points, 0-8 to 0-2 by half time. Moyvane soon began to narrow the gap, and with 10 minutes to go, only a point separated them. A late attack saw St Senan’s taking a late point to leave the final score 0-10 to 0-8. To be fair, St Senans just about deserved to hold out. But we had our chances and could not take advantage of them. However, well done to all the players and selectors for their big effort, and best of luck to St Senan’s in the rest of the championship.
