Letterkenny Gaels 2-08
Moville 0-09

Letterkenny Gaels maintained their healthy position at the top of Division 4 in their encounter with Moville at a wet and windy PaircnanGael on Saturday evening last.
The Letterkenny men were playing with the wind in the first half and  the opening scores were exchanged between Conor Mc Brearty and Nigel Mc Monagle before Mc Brearty raised the green flag on the 6th minute. 3 minutes later Mc Brearty converted a free after being fouled by a Moville defender. Ciaran Diver for the Foyle-siders added a point before Ciaran Lynch in the maroon and white scored 2 unanswered points.
Mid-way through the first half Mc Brearty converted 2 more frees while Sean Mc Donagh scored a great point from play with 5 minutes remaining. After some poor defending by the Gaels the full forward Michael Brown converted a free. The last score of the half came again from the trusty boot of Mc Brearty.

Half time score Letterkenny Gaels 1-08
  Moville 0-03

A hungrier looking Moville side took to the field in the second half with the first 2 points coming from the mid-fielder,Malachy Mc Dermott who scored a free from 35metres and again 5 minutes later from a well struck 45.This came after Ciaran Cannon seemed through for a certain goal but shot just wide. The momentum was now with Moville and the introduction of Sean O’Hare seamed to breathe new life into the visitors after he converted 2 points. The Glebe men rallied and after some great fielding the strong mid-fielder, Brendan O’Brien battled his way through the Moville defence and found the energetic Sean Mc Donagh who burst through and blasted home a great goal.
The Inishowen men battled and with only minutes remaining scored the last 3 points of the game through Seamus Hegarty, Sean O’Hare and Sean Diver.
After 4 minutes of added time the referee blew up this sporting game and the Gaels added another 2 well deserved points to the league table.
