The Division Four pacesetters were much the better side and dominated most of the 60 plus minutes in what was at times a feisty encounter.

Both teams ended the game with 14 after Eunan Hegarty and Gary McNulty were shown red cards ten minutes from time

Moville led by four points, 1-4 to 0-3, at half-time having played with a strong breeze in their backs. Christy Hegarty scored the goal and also kicked a point from a free while Ciaran Diver (2) and Paul Gillen also raised first half white flags.

John Hunter and Johnny McLaughlin hit the first half points for the locals.

Moville kicked on in the second with points from Diver, Gillen, Hegarty, Nigel McMonagle and Danny Murphy.

McLaughlin and Hunter responded for Emmett's who were disappointing in the second half and never really into the game after the break.
