Moy 3-14 Drumragh 4-11 (AET, Moy win 3-1 on pens)

Moy completed the Grade three minor double after winning a penalty shootout with Drumragh in the league decider at Clogher on Sunday afternoon in what was a classic encounter from start to finish.

 

The winners looked to be in complete charge by the 18th minute when they held a 2-4 to 0-2 lead with Patrick and Liam McGeary getting their goals. An own goal from the unfortunate Kevin Quinn took the Sarsfields back into the game and when Niall McCarney fisted to the net as well the gap had been trimmed to 2-5 to 2-3 at the interval.

 

Ghost Pizza man of the match Liam McGeary then left three between them on the restart before McCarney brought the sides level with a brilliant individual goal. Diarmaid Quinn, Ryan McAlary and Patrick McGeary then all scored to put Moy three in front again but back came Drumragh with points from Ryan Montgomery and McCarney before Niall Maguire levelled matters. McGeary then looked to have won it for Moy but Montgomery held his nerve to convert a free with the last kick of the game as it finished 2-11 to 3-8.

 

Cathaoir Hughes and Ryan Baxter exchanged points in the opening minutes of extra time as did McCarney and McGeary before McCarney gave Drumragh a narrow 3-11 to 2-13 lead on the turnaround. Both sides continued to give it their all with McGeary taking his personal haul to 2-7 with his second goal. With the game in injury time Hughes left three between the sides but in a dramatic finish Baxter sent the ball to the net to force penalties. It was a pity that there had to be a loser with Moy Captain Patrick McGeary converting the decisive penalty to win the silverware.
