Result: Asdee 2-5 Moyvane 0-8, Asdee overcame Moyvane in a cracking, tense encounter to record their second win of the year. Asdee were stretched for numbers and up against a strong Moyvane outfit, who have Munster club next week.
Asdee had a dream start which saw Cyril Dineen bury the ball to the roof of the net, finishing off a long ball from Eoin Kennedy inside the first 30 seconds. This was followed by a lovely Darragh Keane point. Moyvane responded with a free, but the Asdee defence were outstanding throughout, not giving the dangerous Moyvane attack an inch.
Asdee struck for a second goal, with a long Darragh Keane ball punched to the net by Stephen Lynch. Lynch then caught a great mark & pointed from all of 40 yards. Moyvane got 2 points before half time, divided by a Darragh Keane free, as Asdee held possession well while down to 14 men with a black card. The half time score was Asdee 2-3 Moyvane 0-3.
Moyvane started the second half the stronger & got a couple of fine points to reduce the lead as Asdee spurned a few scoring chances. The game increasing in tense, with no man taking a backward step. A flare-up saw Asdee receive 2 red cards, while Moyvane got 1, to leave Moyvane with a man advantage for the final 20 minutes.
Mighty team spirit & tackling saw Asdee keep Moyvane at bay as they tried to close the gap. Asdee then had a well worked break up the field ending with an excellent John Doran point from long range. Moyvane added 2 frees to close the gap to 3 points, but every man was putting in a shift to ensure the extra man did not tell on the scoreboard.
Asdee turned over the ball & a brilliant passing move saw Darragh Keane kick a beauty with his left from distance with a few minutes remaining. Moyvane got a point to leave 3 points in it, but Asdee held firm & did not give up the goal chance Moyvane looked for.
A mighty team performance saw Asdee hold on for victory 2-5 to 0-8. Every player can be proud of the work rate & quality they displayed at this stage of the year.
We wish Moyvane the best of luck in their Munster campaign.
Congrats also to Jack Keane who is our captain for the year, with Kieran Kelly vice-captain.
