Football: Stroll in the Meadow for Moyola Park as they net five past Annagh


What looked like a difficult fixture on paper turned out to be a stroll at Mill Meadow for Moyola Park against Annagh.

To be fair to both teams the first half was exciting for both sets of supporters.

Annagh keeper Wright pulled off a great save for Walls in the 10th minute and a minute later at the other end Stretton shot well over the bar.

The same player forced a good save from Farnium before Annagh took the lead in the 16th minute.

A nothing ball into the Moyola defence was somehow miss controlled by Waddell and Nesbitt nipped in to set Campbell up with a simple tap in.

Kenning equalised for Moyola in the 30th minute from the penalty spot after McQuillan had been fouled by Pedan.

Four minutes later Kenning had a header pushed on to the post and by for a corner by Wright. Wright again was called on to make a great save from Dowie.

Moyola took the lead in the 43rd minute when Walsh hit a great 30 yard shot following a Moyola corner. Kenning put Moyola three one up in injury time with a fierce shot from just inside the penalty area.

Moyola took control in the second half and Walsh put the match to bed on the hour with his second and Moyola’s fourth goal.

Annagh attempted a fight back but it was Moyola who scored again in the 85th minute through Kelly. The Portadown side scored a second just before the end.
