Joe Doherty then fired a free kick from the edge of the area well over.Moville had the most of the possession but were finding the Carn defence hard nuts to crack.Carn started the second period the better with a Danaiel McLaughlin cross finding the unmarked Michael Byrne but his header was saved by Sean McGuinness.A Byrne corner then found Gerard McEleney whose reaction header drifted just past the angle.On 69 minutes they opened the scoring after Matthew Byrne fed Daniel McLaughlin on the left and he stepped inside a defender to advance before slipping the ball into Shane Doherty who fired a superb left footed effort to the roof of the net from fifteen yards. Moville pressed hard then with Shane Cannign well wide with a long range effort before a Mark Henry cross glanced off Carn defender Kevin Hirrell and over the bar.From the corner both substitie PJ Barr and Eamon Reddin had successive efforts blocked and cleared.Henry’s looping cross then found another substitute Ryan McClenaghan but he headed well wide.Moville’s best chance came on 81 minutes when McClenaghan fed Joe Doherty whose neat flick sent substitute Tony Boyce clear but Gerard Crossan advanced to spread himself and block superbly. Minutes later it was all over when McLaughlin again advanced on the left and crossed for Cathal Doherty to sweep the ball home from six yards.Moville pressed to the end but again the Carn defence stood up to the challenge.INISHOWEN FOOTBALL LEAGUE: CARN BEAT MOVILLE TO LIFT THE ULSTER JUNIOR CUP was last modified: April 28th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CarndonaghINISHOWEN FOOTBALL LEAGUE: CARN BEAT MOVILLE TO LIFT THE ULSTER JUNIOR CUPmovillelast_img
