It was a bitterly cold night in Wadding park tonight but that did not refrain the Mooncoin march to finish out the first half of the season unbeaten. Bohs played large parts of the first half in possession, constantly looking for a defense splitting pass that unfortunately for them, were knocking on the wrong door.
It was Mooncoin who took the lead, a penalty was awarded and penalty supremo Kipper O’Brien arrowed it into the top left corner of the net. Shortly after it was 2-0, Kelly whipped in a free kick from the right and Kavanagh headed into the far corner of the net and that’s how it stayed until half time. The opening quarter of an hour seen us slow out of the blocks and Bohs got one back with a shot from distance. Defiantly, our togetherness was not shattered, we push and pressed and eventually Synnott gave a ball to Kevin Walsh, he turn onto his preferred right foot, his shot was deflected and looped into the Bohs net. To seal the deal there was a mix up at the back for the home side, the ball fell for Synnott and he slotted it home for a comfortably victory.
Man of the match Johnny Kavanagh work tirelessly from start to finish and was a stand out performance on the night. It has been a very rewarding first half to the season for the squad who have yet to fall behind in a game all season and have picked up 25 out of a possible 27 points .
Well done to all the squad .
