County Senior Hurling “Challenge Cup”
Moycarkey Borris travelled to Toomevara in the County Senior Hurling “Challenge Cup” played in wet and wintery conditions on Sunday last. 
The game opened with a point from Toomevara in the second minute. Two points from Moycarkey’s Pat Ralph and Rory Ryan were immediately traded by Toomevara while they added a further two points to their score line to increase their lead at the end of the first quarter, Toomevara 0-5 Moycarkey Borris 0-2. Toomevara added a further three points to Moycarkey Borris’s two points before the half time whistle, Toomevara 0-8 Moycarkey Borris 0-4.
Toomevara continued to dominate in the second half, scoring the first six points of the half to stretch their lead to ten points heading in to the final quarter. Moycarkey had to wait until the forty sixth minute before Tom Hayes pointed their first score of the second half. The final ten minutes of the game saw Moycarkey scoring no less than five points which served only to reduce the deficit at the final whistle, Toomevara 0-16 Moycarkey Borris 0-11.
Moycarkey Borris team:- Bill McCormack; Paul Dempsey, James Power, Kevin Moran; James Bourke, Conor Hayes, Daniel Kirby; Rory O’Regan, Kieran Cummins; Brian Moran (0-1), Pat Carey, Rory Ryan (0-1); Pat Ralph (0-5, 4 frees), John Bergin, Tom Hayes (0-2)
Subs used:- Anthony Healy (0-2) for John Bergin, Niall Heffernan for Kieran Cummins, Michael Cussen for Daniel Kirby, Jamie Fanning for Brian Moran 

County Intermediate Hurling League
On Saturday last Moycarkey Borris commenced their Intermediate League campaign in Littleton meeting a stronger Gortnahoe Glengoole team. Gortnahoe opened the scoring in the second minute with a pointed free and Moycarkey stayed in contention for the first fifteen minutes, Gortnahoe Glengoole 1-2 Moycarkey Borris 0-3. However, the second quarter was a different affair with Gortnahoe Glengoole scoring six points with, Ciaran Clohessy’s point just before the interval being Moycarkey’s only response - Gortnahoe Glengoole 1-8 Moycarkey Borris 0-4.
The second half saw little change in the run of play and from the throw in, Gortnahoe registered six points before Moycarkey’s John Kelly got their first score in the twelfth minute. Gortnahoe were dominating all over the field and tensions were running high with both teams being reduced to 14 men. A further six points from Gortnahoe meant that Moycarkey Borris’s hat trick of points in the final five points of the game did little to the scoreline as the visitors ran out winners on a scoreline of Gortnahoe Glengoole 1-20 Moycarkey Borris 0-8.
Moycarkey team:- David Ryan; Mikie Bergin, Lorcan Ryan, Timmy Ryan; Eric Fanning (0-1), Gerry McGuire, Joe O’Sullivan; Mattie Ryan (0-1), Aidan Maher (0-1); Robert Doran, Ciaran Clohessy (0-2, 2 frees), Michael Cussen; Anthony Healy, John Kelly (0-2), Jamie Fanning (0-1).
Subs used:- JJ Darmody for Robert Doran, Stephen Kirwan for Anthony Healy, Paddy Maher for Michael Cussen. 

 Mid Under 12 Football
On Saturday evening last Moycarkey Borris Group 1 team had a competitive encounter with JK Brackens in Templemore. Moycarkey were just a point up at half time and had to face into the breeze for the second half. In a brilliant game Moycarkey held their advantage finishing on the right side of a 4-6 to 4-5 result.

In our second game our group 4 team put in a spirited performance against the JK Brackens again with just a point between the sides at half time. Early scores for the opposition in the second half proved decisive with the Brackens winning well in the finish. There were still many positives to take from this game.
