Oldcastle 2:18 - Moynalty/Carnaross 2:10
The Moynalty/Carnaross U17s kicked off their league campaign on Tuesday night one month overdue because of all the bad weather. Their opponents were Oldcastle who have ran them close over the years, could not beat them, but the games are always tight. The pitch was very heavy with all the rain that had fallen, not to forget the after effects of “Storm Emma”.
Oldcastle kicked off with two quick points then Paddy Farnham, starting at full forward, found the back of the Oldcastle net followed by two quick points from Darragh O’Reilly followed by points from Luke Gillick & Bryan Mc Cormack. Oldcastle struck back with a goal of their own and followed by ten more points before half time.
Moynalty/Carnaross forwards James Lynch and Cian Lynch chipped in with a point each.
Half time score Oldcastle 1-12 Moynalty/Carnaross 1-06
Our boys started far better in the second half and put up a good show with Bryan McCormack scoring 1:03 and Darragh Reilly 0:01 but Oldcastle scored 1:06 in the second half.
Final score Oldcastle 2:18 - Moynalty/Carnaross 2:10.
Even though there was an 8-point difference, Moynalty/Carnaross were guilty of squandering a lot of chances in front of goal but the muddy pitch hampered their ability to play good solid football which they usually play.
