Buncrana will feel disappointed, having created lots of chances, with the draw but on the other hand Moville will feel a draw was the least they deserved for a battling display. This was a highly entertaining game which saw Moville dominate the early exchanges. On seven minutes they won a penalty which Kyle Harkin converted. Two minutes later Lee Mc Colgan almost extended Moville’s lead, only to be thwarted by a finger tip save from Hearts’ keeper Mc Nutt. After this Hearts began to gain control in midfield and on fifteen minutes good interplay between Michael Doherty and Alan Friel created an opening for Pauric O’ Flaherty but his shot was saved by Moville’s keeper Coyle. Buncrana kept pressing and James Adair was unlucky to see his long range free kick go narrowly wide. Then on twenty minutes another Adair free kick wasn’t produced confusion in the Moville defense and Paul Mc Daid was on hand to put Hearts back on level terms from close range. This was to be the pattern for the remainder of the first half with Hearts attacking and Moville relying on Norbert IIndyka, up front, to create any goal scoring opportunities.

The second half started with Buncrana still on the front foot and on fifty eight minutes Michael Doherty’s cross, after good work down the right, almost fell into the path of the onrushing Pauric O’ Flaherty. With all their possession Buncrana failed to create any other significant goal scoring opportunities against a Moville defense of Diver, Doherty, Mc Laughlin and Mc Cauley. Gradually Moville weathered this pressure and got on the front foot. After a series of corners, Norbert Indyka scrambled the ball over the line in sixty second minute to put Moville back in front. This stung Hearts into action and after a series of attacks which kept Moville penned back in their final third, they succumbed to the Hearts pressure on seventy two minutes. James Adair picked up a partial clearance twenty yards out and his beautifully delivered diagonal cross was controlled and volleyed to the roof of the net, giving keeper Coyle no chance, by the ever industrious Alan Friel. This was the signal for all out attack from the Hearts which saw Ben Bradley go close with two headers and in the final minute of the game Bradley saw another header tipped on to the bar and then gathered in by keeper Coyle,.
