The U16 boys had to dig deep to come from behind to beat a tough Carn team on Friday night in the Inishowen A semi final.
Carn started the brighter and had a goal and a point on the board before Moville got their first score from Paddy Faulkner.
A goal from Jack Banks after a 45 had dropped short had Moville back on level terms after 20 minutes however despite some great fielding by Mark Browne their lethargic start continued for the remainder of the half as Carn led 1-4 to 1-2 at half time.
Both teams scored 2 points apiece at the start of the second half before Moville clawed themselves level with points from Paddy Faulkner and young Eoghan Gillen who had advanced from the backline.
With the game level, and the tackles coming in thick and fast from both teams, the turning point came when Cathal McLaughlin scored a goal at the 2nd attempt after his first effort had been well saved by the Carn keeper.
Moville added another point from Paddy Faulkner before Carn replied with a goal of their own to leave a point in it with 3 minutes to go.
Moville also lost their goalkeeper Ciaran Bonner to injury which added to the blow as he was enjoying a commanding game in goals.
However not for the first time this season, the boys dug deep in the last few minutes and added an insurance point from the impressive Browne.
While this win maintains the boys 100% record for the season, they will know that this was far from their best performance and a massive improvement will be required to beat a highly impressive Muff team in the final.
The U14 girls will contest the county semi-final on Tuesday 24th June at 7.30pm in Carrick Field. The club would like to wish them the best of luck and encourage as many members as possible to come along and support. Remember, nothing beats being there!
The Senior Men have been having a good run of form of late, but unfortunately there was no match last weekend, as Na Rosa did not field. Below is a match report from the very tight Naomh Ultan game from the weekend before.
Moville 2-07 Naomh Ultan 2-06
Moville and Naomh Ultan were neck and neck in fourth and third place respectively in Division four with only a point between them. Naomh Ultan wanted the two points to keep in touch with Letterkenny Gaels and Convoy, Moville wanted the victory to move up to third in the league. On a fine night for football, Moville had the brighter star with points from Nigel McMonagle and Sean O’Hare in the 5th and 6th minutes. Nigel provided excellent build up play before laying the ball off to Joshua Lafferty who raised the green flag with a well taken goal in the 11th minute. Naomh Ultan got a score on the board two minutes later with their first point. Enda Faulkner made an excellent run from his own half to the opponents’ goal and has his shot blocked by an excellent save from the Naomh Ultan keeper only for Lafferty to grab his second goal from the rebound. Naomh Ultan scored another point from a free; followed by points from Dannt Murphy and Ciaran Diver for Moville in quick succession. A mix up in the Moville defence led to an easy goal for Naomh Ultan on the stroke of half time, leaving the score 2-05 to 1-02.
The second half started with much of the play in the middle of the field and few chances for either team, with Naomh Ultan breaking the stalemate in the 10th minute with a point, then another on the 12th to close the gap. Sean O’Hare scored another point from a free in the 16th minute, and Naomh Ultan got another point a minute later. There was a quiet spell in terms of scoring and again Naomh Ultan came out of this with a point and a goal in quick succession to draw level in the 26th minute. It was the cool head of Sean O’Hare who slotted over a free in the 31st minute to take the game for the home side.
Moville: 1. Oran McDermott; 2. Shaun Diver; 3. Enda Faulkner; 4. Declan Logue; 5. Jack Keys; 6. Michael Brown; 7. Ciaran Diver (0-01); 8. John McGeady; 9. Malachy McDermott; 10. Danny Murphy (0-01); 11. Sean O’Hare (0-03, 2f); 12. Maurice Harkin; 13. Seamus Hegarty; 14. Nigel McMonagle (0-01); 15. Joshua Lafferty (2-01)
Unfortunately the Senior Reserves were unable to overcome Naomh Ultan reserves, having been defeated by a score of 2-07 to 3-11.
Training this week on Wednesday and Friday at 6.30
Well done to both Donegal Senior and Minor teams who now through to this year’s Ulster Final. Well done to our club players Tony Mc Cleneghan and Ciaran Diver who are part of the minor squad.

Hard luck to the Donegal Senior Ladies team who lost out to Armagh on Sunday. Well done to Niamh Hegarty and Sarah-Jane Mc Donald who were part of the team and to the team manager Davy Mc Laughlin who had put in a huge effort since taking over the team.
