MOYOLA travelled to the Dub on Saturday to play Queens in the final game of the season.

Moyola had the first chance of the game in the 12th minute when a free kick from Kelly was flicked on by Ritchie and Lucas hit the resulting shot wide. Two minutes later Stewart found Hassan and his shot was saved by Duff.

The home side opened the scoring in the 17th minute when Phil Prenter’s shot was blocked and the ball broke to James Lavery who scored from six yards. Two minutes later Lavery returned the compliment, passing to Prenter who flicked it home from close range. The home side extended the lead in the 28th minute when a poor back pass from Whiteside was picked up by Mulholland and he tapped the ball into an empty net.

The visitor’s pushed for a goal to get back into the game and in the 31st minute a free kick from McFadden came back of the cross bar.

Just before half time both Stewart Lucas had shots saved by Duff and in between this Maguire at the other end saved from M Prenter following a pass from McManus. In injury time of the first half Duff he made his best save following a shot from Hassan on the right.

Moyola tried hard to get a goal and in the 51st minute great work from Stewart and Lucas found Hassan and his shot was saved by Duff. Queens made it four in the 52nd minute when a long range shot from M Prenter was spilled by Maguire and Mulholland reacted the quickest to fire the ball into the back of the net.

Moyola made changes in the 58th minute with Pattison and Kells replacing Kenning & Ritchie. In the 70th minute Stewart had an effort saved by Duff and 5 minutes later the visitor’s made a change with McIlhatton replacing Lucas.

Queens continued to pile the pressure on and Mullholland had a shot in the 83rd minute well saved by Maguire. The same player finshed the scoring and claimed his hat trick in injury time when he beat the offside trap for an easy finish.
