Rock solid Moher reap rewards in tough tie

Moher Celtic  3

Inch Crusaders  2

MOHER Celtic captured the points when they accounted for Inch Crusaders in this second-division tie on Sunday.
They took the lead through Barry McGovern but Inch, who lost Conor Neylon to injury after just five minutes, hit back and levelled through Gavin Cording who was making his debut for the club, who got on the end of a Pádraig Talty cross.
Inch then lost John Clohessy to injury and while they were on top for the next 10 minutes, they failed to turn this into scores.
Two goals from Paul Cagney gave the North Clare side control and while Inch pulled one back through Pádraig Talty after good work by his twin brother, Seán, and Michael Pyne. The visitors missed a great chance to level just before the break.

Newmarket Celtic B  1

Rhine Rovers  5

MCDONAGH Park was the venue for this neighbourly clash last Sunday but there was nothing neighbourly about Rhine Rovers’ finishing as they proved too strong for their hosts. Rovers dominated the early exchanges but a rare foray forward by Newmarket led to a corner, which was powered home by Tom Monaghan with Rory Callinan getting a hand to it but he couldn’t prevent it crossing the line.
Having missed a couple of early chances themselves, this goal provided the jolt Rovers needed after a long lay-off from league fixtures. Indeed, this was only Rovers’ second league game. Christy O’Brien scored a quick brace to redress the balance. His first strike was an excellent finish high into the net and he nodded home his second after some great work by Conor Byrne and Kevin Johnston. Seán Heaney scored the third in the first minute of the second half before Kevin Johnston put the tie beyond doubt with a classy finish after a superb Gary Hogan cross. Mark Hanrahan got just rewards for his efforts with his first and Rovers fifth with 10 minutes remaining.
