Today our 2B side travelled to Carrick United knowing a win would take us top of table and following a 6 weeks with no fixture we got off to a slow start. For most of the first half Carrick retained possession but it was Mooncoin who were posing the most treat. Kevin Walsh gave us a great start after 15 minutes. A ball was whipped into the box by Synnott, met the head of Walsh who looped a header over the keeper and into the left corner of the net. By the half hour mark it was 2-0. Mooncoin broke away from deep inside their half, Synnott passed a ball across the box to Kevin Walsh and from 10 yards out made no mistake placing it into the bottom left corner.
Carrick clawed one back just before half time from a free kick. The ball was whipped into the box and headed home. In the second half Mooncoin found a foothold in the game. Substitutes Kavanagh, Doyle, R. Walsh and Savauge made positive impacts in the half.
It was Kavanagh who sealed the game at the death with a nice header from a free kick from Savauge to give us a fantastic result on what was a very murky afternoon in Tom Drohan Park.
