Senior Girls Football MOVILLE MISS OUT IN ALL IRELAND SEMI Reigning champions Moville CC were knocked out of the Senior Cup by Presentation Secondary School, Kilkenny in Cootehill Harps AFC after an intense battle Moville CC 1 Presentation Secondary 4 Moville beat Athlone Community College twelve months ago to claim the All Ireland Senior title. Moville also won this coveted cup in 2013. Moville carved out numerous goal-scoring chances early on as Megan Havlin and Kate McClenaghan both went agonisingly close in the opening quarter. Katie Ryan pulled off an intercept off the line and denied Havlin a chance to score following some great work by McClenaghan down the right wing. But it was Niamh Phelan who broke the deadline before the break when she slotted home an individual effort. Kilkenny had the upper hand in the second half with two more goals in quick succession. Moville responded when Megan Havlin converted in a packed goalmouth to take the game to 3 1 with 28 minutes remaining. Clodagh Skelly was called upon in quick succession to stop the advances of Molloy and Phelan with two excellent point blank saves. At the other end Ruddy and Brownhad two balls smash off the woodwork as Moville fought to save their cup campaign. However the game was unfortunately wrapped up with a goal from Ellen Molloy two minutes from time. Well played to all and comiserations to the brilliant Moville girls. 75
