Kenning inspired Moyola claim the points at Killyleagh


Moyola Ladies travelled to Wedderburn Park, Finaghy Road South, Belfast to play their mid-week home match at a halfway venue against Killyleagh YC Ladies.

Killyleagh, fielding a much stronger team than they had in the previous encounter, took a shock lead.

Moyola pushed forward trying to find the equaliser but just could not get the ball in the back of the net.

Killyleagh went on the attack again, forcing a corner, and from the resulting set piece Moyola got another scare when a header came off the crossbar, going into half time at 1-0 down.

Second half started with Moyola on the attack and it was only a matter of time before Moyola scored a well taken goal by Courtney Brown making it 1-1. Claire McCracken made it 2-1when she shot to the left hand side of the keeper. Jessica McGurk made it 3-1 .

Charlene Kenning, now running the show in midfield, had a couple of shots over the bar.

Another three points for this young Moyola side who play Chimney Corner Breda Ladies on Wednesday night in Antrim and look forward to their semi final cup match against Crumlin Utd Ladies at the end of July, date to be confirmed.
