Sunday, October 6th witnessed an exceptional hurling final when Moyle Rovers met Carrick Swan in the U12 Group 1, South Hurling Final.
From start to finish both sides battled hard and sportingly, with Moyle Rovers leading by five points to no score at half time. However, the second half threw up a thriller and saw both sides trading scores evenly.
All players gave it everything they had, with both goalkeepers making superb saves, creating a rollercoaster of emotions among the mentors and supporters.
While Moyle Rovers brought the game to a successful conclusion by a margin of two points, due credit must be given to the Swan players and mentors whose contribution to the game made this a memorable final.
Final score was 2-7 to Moyle Rovers and 3-2 to Carrick Swan.
The minors earned a hard won victory over Aherlow last Saturday evening in Monroe. This was a very good team performance, especially in the second half, and was a just reward for hard graft.
Aherlow made us fight all the way to the last minute though.
Moyle Rovers elected to play with the advantage of the breeze. We started well but Aherlow took the initiative and we found ourselves 1-2 to 0-3 down at half-time.
Both teams upped the ante significantly in the second half. Points from Orla Ryan, Danni di Ruzza and Sarah Everard were followed by a Caroline Quirke goal to give us the lead.
Derbhile Fitzgearld was introduced at half-time and made her presence felt at centre-field.
Aherlow however stayed in touch to the very end with some well taken goals.
Final score Moyle Rovers 2-11 to Aherlow 4-3.
