Carrickmore Vs Moy – 2013 Tyrone GAA Senior Club Championship, Semi Final

Moy made it to their first semi finals of the Tyrone SFC in over 50 years on Saturday and their opponents were one of the title favourites, Carrickmore.

The match took place in sunny conditions in Pomeroy although there was the occasional breeze which made shooting difficult. In a tame enough first half, Carrickmore took in a 4 point lead thanks to a goal on the stroke of HT from Martin Penrose. Moy pulled the game back to a single point with 15 minutes remaining with some tremendous play and shooting from Sean Cavanagh but at the other end of the field Mark Donnelly bagged a second goal for Carmen and Paul McAleer finished the game with a third goal.

Perhaps the final score doesn’t reflect how much of an entertaining game it was but no one could argue with who the better team was.

Full time score: Carrickmore 3-09 Moy 0-09.

Carrickmore are now the first side through to this year’s Tyrone SFC Final, their first final since 2010.

Moy Vs Trillick – 2013 Tyrone GAA Senior Club Championship, Quarter Final

Moy continued their successful arrival back in senior football with a victory over Trillick in the Tyrone SFC quarter finals yesterday in Pomeroy.

Paul Rouse scored the decisive goal for Moy in the first half and combined with some excellent play from the Cavanagh brothers (again!), Ryan Mellon, Karol McQuaid and Eunan Deeney, they went in 1-05 to 0-05 up at the break. The second half had no longer started however when Trillick’s rising star Rory Brennan sustained a serious injury – the ambulance services were then called for which resulted in a 45 minute delay to the game. (Thankfully I hear the injury isn’t as bad as first thought but it was best to air on the side of caution).

I left the game at this point as I had the 2 games in Dungannon also to cover but Moy held on despite a late rally from Trillick to set up a Tyrone SFC semi final tie against Carrickmore on Saturday.

Full time score; Moy 1-09 Trillick 0-09.

Moy Vs Killyclogher – 2013 Tyrone GAA Senior Club Championship, First Round

Moy produced one of the comebacks of the Tyrone SFC on Saturday against Killyclogher when they overturned a 5 point trail at HT to win in emphatic style.

Killyclogher looked comfortable after 2 first half goals from Leo Meenan and James Carlin  to give them a 2-04 to 0-05 lead at HT. Moy however struck back immediately in the second half with Declan Conroy hitting the back of the net and then Ryan Mellon converted a penalty.  Moy began to control around midfield thanks to the Cavanagh brothers and Niall Conlon struck a third goal, giving them the lead for the first time. Killyclogher had no response to this onslaught and failed to score in the second half…. a game of two halves.

Full time score; Moy 3-09 Killyclogher 2-04.

Well done to Moy, they now move onto play Trillick in the quarter finals.

Coalisland Vs Moy – 2013 Tyrone GAA ACL Division 1

Last weekend the Tyrone ACL resumed after all the county action and I attended the Coalisland Vs Moy Division 1 game.

It was a tight game throughout and it was Moy who had the upper hand at half time taking in a 0-05 to 1-04 lead with the advantage of the breeze. The second half continued in the same vain but an unfortunate goal keeping error from Moy resulted in the Fianna scoring a goal to take the lead which they then never let slip.

Full time score; Coalisland 1-10 Moy 1-07.

Rock Vs Moy – 2012 Tyrone GAA Intermediate Championship, Quarter Final

From the hurling finals in Omagh, I drove over to Dungannon’s O’Neill Park to catch the second half of the 2012 Tyrone Intermediate championship quarter final tie between Rock and Moy.

By the time I got there the second half was just starting and Rock were 1-04 to 0-06 up. The second half was an exciting and very close affair with Moy taking a one point lead in the 49th minute after scores from Eunan Deeney and Ryan Mellon. Rock’s Conor Mc Creesh (who I hear gave a master class in free kick taking) levelled the game again and then they restored their lead with another point from Mc Creesh and Dairmuid Carroll. Moy battled on and despite Rock being reduced to 13 men, they held on to progress to the Tyrone Intermediate Championship semi-finals. They are definitely a side that I fancy for the title this year…. watch outside Cookstown!!

Although I only arrived at the start of the second half, I’m reasonably happy with the shots I got from the game.

Moy Vs Cookstown Fr Rocks

Moy took on Cookstown Fr Rocks on Sunday evening in the starred Division 2 league fixture. The absence of county men Colm Cavanagh, Owen Mulligan and Sean Cavanagh (who is out for the year after last weekend’s injury) didn’t take away from the quality of football and the bite in this game and it gave the spectators a chance to see how these sides could do without their main men.

Unfortunately due  to time constraints, I had to leave this game at half time. By this stage Cookstown Fr Rocks were 1-06 to 0-05 up thanks to a well taken Conor Mullan goal. Cookstown went on to comfortably win the game then in the second half on a scoreline of; Cookstown Fr Rocks 1-10 Moy 0-09.

Below are some of my photos all taken in the first half….. next weekend its back to the county scene as Tyrone take on Armagh in the first round of the 2012 Ulster Championship in the Athletic Grounds. Come on Tir Eoghain!!

Dromore Vs Moy

On Friday night, in the first of a double header in the Tyrone Senior Club Championship, Dromore took on Moy at Healy Park, Omagh. Due to both clubs having similar shades of blue in their jerseys, a last minute kit change took place with Dromore wearing the away red Tyrone top and Moy sporting the traditional white Tyrone jersey. Not ideal for photographs but these things happen occasionally.

This was never going to be an easy game for Moy especially when their star player, Sean Cavanagh, injured himself during a gym session for the upcoming International Rules games last week, ruling himself out for the rest of 2011 at least.

From the outset of the game, Dromore were firmly in control and lead 1-07 to 0-03 at the break. Although Moy made a blistering start to the second half, they couldn’t sustain the momentum and Dromore came out comfortable 1-14 to 0-06 winners thanks to a personal tally of 1-07 from Dromore’s Eoin Mc Cusker.

Tomas Mc Nicholl clears the ball from the Moy back line. This was taken just after 7pm and there was a nice light coming across the pitch as the sun set.
