The U/16’s had a very exciting win over Duagh in the final of the North Kerry League. On the night Moyvane played with tremendous spirit and everybody played their part. An early goal by Trevor Keane put Moyvane in the driving seat, but in true Duagh fashion, they fought their way back into the game. Scores were still very close and near the end Liam Kennelly scored the vital goal that eventually saw Moyvane home. Duagh were attacking very strongly in the end but excellent defending by Kieran

Kennelly, David Foley and William Madden kept them out. In the end, it was Moyvane who held on for the victory. Gary Keane was named a very well deserved man of the match after he gave a truly great performance.

Moyvane U/12 were well beaten by Churchill in the final round of the County league on Friday night. They will now have to wait for the regrouping to see when their next game will be.
