Moy’s thirty five year wait for Intermediate championship success came to an end at Carrickmore on Sunday afternoon when they defeated prematch favourites Derrylaughan to deny the Kevin Barrys the double.

It was a case of third time lucky for the sky blues as after losing to Clann Na Gael and Trillick in finals at the same venue they at last came up trumps on a 2-5 to 1-7 scoreline. The opening twenty five minutes was a dour affair with both defences on top as they sides shared four points from Fergal McAliskey, Sean Cavanagh, Patrick Quinn and Harry Loughran. Colm Cavanagh then won possession and released Harry Loughran who finished low to the net past keeper Michael McGrath and when Sean Cavanagh landed a fine free from out on the left wing Moy led 1-3 to 0-2 at the break.

Within fifteen seconds of the restart Ciaran Quinn had opened the scoring for Derrylaughan but Moy responded with an inspirational score from Colm Cavanagh after he had gone past three challenges. Tomas Carney then landed a fine score from distance for the Loughshore men but in the 34th minute Loughran grabbed his second goal of the afternoon after he had reacted first to a Ryan Coleman effort than had come back off the post.

Derrylaughan though aren’t league champions for nothing and they responded with points from  Ciaran Gervin, McAliskey and Patrick Quinn either side of a 40th minute Ciaran Quinn goal to level matters. With three minutes to go though Coleman popped up with the winner as Moy held on despite having defender Patrick Mackle sent off late on.
