United celebrate hard-earned win over Moyola Park

Limavady United............2 Moyola...............0
ON a foul, rain drenched night, Limavady United took, perhaps the most significant step towards retaining their title, as they ground out a hard earned win against dogged opponents who had chances to snatch at least a point. After three weeks of high quality football, this was a typical derby - full of effort but little skill in which the only thing that mattered was the result.
If the Roesiders do manage to hold on to the top spot - they now find themselves six points clear - the significance of Tuesday's result will be hard to over-estimate.
It was the deadly duo of Hume and McCready who weighed in with a goal apiece to claim the points.
United started brightly with Hume shooting wide of the far post from inside the box in the third minute. For most of the next quarter of an hour, they kept the visitors pinned back but with little end product.
