Moyola under 15’s hit Craigavon City for 8

Moyola travelled to a sunny yet breezy Fairhill in Cookstown to play Craigavon, this was the second time this season these two teams have met.

Moyola started confidently and five minutes in, a clearance downfield from Darragh found McElhatton. A teasing cross into the box from the right wing was turned into the net by an unfortunate Craigavon defender in his desperate attempt to clear the ball. From the restart Moyola continued to create opportunities. Darragh stroked a corner-kick low into the front post but Downey slide the shot wide. Minutes later Downey found himself in space on the edge of the penalty area but watched agonisingly as his curling shot went narrowly wide of the far upright. Moyola’s second came from Doyle who calmly and neatly headed in a Downey cross. Doyle could, and should, have had his second with Moyola’s next attack. He flicked on a pass to beat his marker and race into the box only to direct his shot straight in the keeper’s arms. The keepers clearance virtually came straight back into the Craigavon half and Darragh held off the challenge and calmly stroked the ball home. Cassidy, in the Moyola goal, was a spectator for long periods but when called on was quick off his line to clear up any danger. McElhatton was again the creator of another fantastic opportunity down Moyola’s right hand side, he beat the defender and his deep cross was meet by Doyle on the volley. The keeper blocked this and produced a fine save as Doyle shot a second time. The ball was palmed away to Murray who sent a blazing shot across the box and wide. The half finished as McAtamney rose in the box to meet a corner but for his headed effort to go wide.

The second period had just started and the hard working Murray showed great control and half-volleyed a ball which dropped over his shoulder only for it to curl wide of the post. O’Kane replaced Murray and the fresh legs had an immediate impact on the pace of the game. He found himself on the end of a Doyle through-ball and cut in from the ring wing to send over an inch perfect pass to give McElhatton the easy job of stroking the ball home for number four. Connery, playing in midfield, was continually thwarting everything that Craigavon tried to do in the middle of the park. O’Kane scored his second goal in two games as he slide his shot past the keeper from a Darragh cross. McGrogan had a great game playing alongside McAtamney, his ability of reading of the game saw him eliminate the Craigavon threat time after time. Downey brought another spectacular save from the Craigavon keeper with his a long range effort and full back McGuigan saw his shot come back off the post as he joined the attack. Moyola’s sixth and O’Kane’s second came with ten minutes remaining on the clock. This time the midfielder ran onto a loose ball on the edge of the box and blasted past the goalkeeper into the corner. A ball lobbed over the Craigavon defence saw Darragh race through, straining every muscle to get a touch and poke the ball over the onrushing keeper but for the ball to land on the roof of the net. McElhatton got his brace finding the net after striking a low cross from the left back into the far corner and O’Kane got his well deserved hatrick when Connery’s cross found him unmarked in the box and scoring with the last kick of the game.
