Summerhill played host to neighbours Moynalvey on Sunday morning in Summerhill in what could only be described as artic conditions, a heavy shower of sleet / snow just before the start which thankfully cleared , and a very strong wind didn’t make this an attractive encounter. With mistakes being made by both sides Moynalvey lead briefly in the 23rd minute after they got their goal, but that was the only time they led in the game. Goals win games and the home side scored three in the first half against a very strong wind, Sean Dalton on 13 minute, Conor Lyons on 27 minutes and Liam Shaw on the stroke of half time, and went in at the break 3-2 to the visitors 1-4. .It was the hill who pushed on in the second half and further goals from Conor Lyons six minutes from time and Sean Dalton with four minutes to go sealed the game for the home side..
