Cavanagh boys draw on their vast experience to fire up Moy

Moy 0-9 Carrickmacross 1-5

Tyrone side Moy advanced to the Ulster Club IFC semi-finals with a one-point win over Monaghan's Carrickmacross at Healy Park yesterday.

A mostly scrappy encounter was closely contested, with the experience of Colm and Sean Cavanagh and Harry Loughran helping Moy against a fancied Carrickmacross side, who will rue their wasteful finishing that saw them hit 13 wides.

Carrickmacross got off to a flying start with three unanswered points in the first 10 minutes - two from veteran county man Stephen Gollogly and one from Sean Downey - while Moy lost Tom Loughran to a black card.

Moy scored five points in a nine-minute flurry midway through the first half, with Harry Loughran hitting a brace and Sean Cavanagh, Ryan Coleman and Adam Currie also on target.

A Gollogly free ended a 20-minute barren spell for Carrickmacross, but Moy sub Patrick Lavery replied to send his side in with a 0-6 to 0-4 lead.

A well-struck Sean Cavanagh free stretched Moy's lead after the restart, but a slaloming run saw Stephen O'Hanlon score a brilliant goal to bring Carrickmacross level on 38 minutes.

Gollogly's fourth point edged the Emmets ahead, but they failed to score in the remaining 20-plus minutes. A booming point from Harry Loughran got Moy back on terms and a Sean Cavanagh free proved to be the winning score.

Moy will now face Newbridge of Derry on November 12.

Scorers: Moy: H Loughran, S Cavanagh (2f) 0-3 each; A Currie, R Coleman, P Lavery 0-1 each. Carrickmacross: S Gollogly 0-4 (3f); S O'Hanlon 1-0; S Downey 0-1.
