Goals put out Dunloy’s lights

Thursday, 16 November 2017

THE balance of power in Ulster hurling is very much changing with Dunloy minors the latest Antrim side to suffer at the every growing might of Derry.
With Slaughtneil blazing the way at senior level Dungiven are now on the up with a convincing victory against Dunloy in this Ulster semi-final at Ballinascreen.
The reigning champions took a tumble as Dungiven turned the tables from last year with a more than convincing ten point success.
A blistering start saw the Derry champions fly out of the blocks and in the opening nine minutes scored 2-4 which set them up for an easier than expected victory.
In the end it turned into a shoot out between Dungiven's Richie Mullan who bagged a goal and five points and Dunloy's Ronan Molloy who got ten of his sides eleven points.
Inability to get scores from open play proved the downfall of the Antrim champions with just one of their total, Molloy mid-way through the second half, slinging over a great effort. They depended on the accuracy of the same Molloy from frees to keep them in touch, which he did with unerring accuracy.
Two early points from Mullan got the Derry men away with Eoin McKeever gaoling after three minutes and Mullan banging home a penalty two minutes later leaving Dunloy stunned.
