Moville Celtic 4
Carrowmena FC 1
In the opening minute Finn McLaughlin’s cross shot was parried by Samuel Bredin who recovered to gather Conor Doherty’s follow up. Carrowmena responded and Mark Doherty fired just over from distance. Conor Doherty then broke into the Moville area but fired weakly at Sean McGuinness. Carrowmena were out of luck when Christy McGeoghaghan saw his effort crash back off the post after a free into the area. At the other end Bredin dived low to his left to save brilliantly. Midway through the half Doherty fed McLaughlin whose cross saw Michael McNuaght denied twice by Bredin. The home side break the deadlock on 28 minutes when Doherty’s ball over the top released McNaught to race clear and fire past Bredin.

In injury time a John Gillen free found Charlie Gill whose header clips the bar before Bredin makes a stunning save to deny Conor Doherty from point blank range. Carrowmena’s Colin Doherty had the first effort of the second period but his cross effort was well claimed by McGuinness. When Carrowmena fail to clear a corner Charlie Gill saw his shot deflected onto the pot an cleared. McGuinness then saves well low to his left after Colin Doherty’s effort took a big deflection. Moville make it two nil on 59 minutes when after the visitors defence heads the ball clear Conor Doherty unleashed a volley through a crowd of players to the bottom corner. Billy McCann then added another quick goal to make it three nil before the same player crosses to Gill whose mis hit effort was grabbed by Bredin. A quick break by the home side saw Michael McNaught have an effort well saved. Carrowmen reduced the deficit when Colin Doherty was upended and Dean McGeoghaghan fired a powerful effort past McGuinness who got a hand to the ball. McGuinness then saved to deny Jude Harkin on 85 minutes. But on 89 minutes Bredin beat out a Conor Doherty effort but Doherty lobbed the ball over keeper and defender to complete the scoring. Carrowmena spurned a late chance when Colin Doherty headed over when well placed.
