THE home side got their league campaign off to an excellent with this win. The opening score arrived on 3 minutes when Norbert Indyka got on the end of an Adam Harkin delivery and he finished low to the net past Dylan Clarke.
Aileach replied on the quarter hour mark when a Daibhidh Grant free from 25 yards was just wide.
In a fairly even first half the closest opportunity for the visitors to equalise came 10 minutes before the break when Callum Porter, under pressure to get his shot away, brought a good save from Moville netminder Ryan Coyle.
The home side started brightly after the interval with Kyle Harkin having a shot saved by Clarke. However, despite Aileach putting Moville under some pressure, it was the home side who moved further in front midway through the half when a James Gillen free kick was headed home at the back post by the evergreen Graeme Doherty.

Midway through the half Greencastle took the lead when Pauric Gillen laid the ball back to Daniel Rowan whose first time unstoppable shot from outside the area gave Ryan McCole no chance.
The same combination saw Rowan shoot wide when well placed.
Gillen had a good chance to increase the lead but the ‘keeper prevailed in a one-on-one situation.
The visitors Mickey McColgan saw his free blocked by Christy Hegarty in the wall before Stephen Davenport was just wide from 20 yards.
At the end of the half Rowan played Mc Dermott into the box but his shot hit the outside of a post. Early in the second half good approach play involving Rowan and McDermott created an opportunity for John Hegarty but his shot was saved.
On the hour mark the visitors equalised when the ball was played in to Darren Harkin and he slotted home for 1–1.
Five minutes later Greencastle regained the lead when Christy Hegarty managed to evade a number of tackles before getting to the byeline and crossing for the inrushing sub Cathal Mc Laughlin to drive home from eight yards.

Gleneely Colts 4 Glengad Reserves 0
A BRACE of goals from both Corey O’Brien and Nathan McLaughlin got Gavin McLaughlin’s tenure as manager of the home side off to a convincing start.
They were two ahead early in the game. After just two minutes, a McLaughlin corner into the box was poked home from close in by O’Brien.
Five minutes later O’Brien turned provider when he intercepted a pass near the half way line, burst forward to the edge of the area and laid the ball back to McLaughlin who slotted home from six yards.

O’Brien won a ball and laid off to McLaughlin who advanced into the box before scoring low to the left from 15 yards.
Home keeper Duffy was not seeing too much action in the second half and only a PJ McDaid attempt threatened his goal while more chances went a begging at the other end.
The fourth goal came close to the end when O’Brien accepted a throw in from Kevin Doherty and advanced unchallenged to score past Michael McLaughlin from just inside the area.Tags:
