The 2018 kicked off with a home game in what was heavy conditions after 11weeks without a game , That being said the football was good for the majority of the first half but we never reached the higher gears. The half saw long spells of possession and movement and finally the deadlock was broke. After consecutive chances missed by, D. Synnott, E. Walsh, J. O’Hanlon and I. Synnott, it was the later ian synnott who found the net after a neat ball through from E. Walsh when he rounded the keeper . The second half was lacking quality and end product for much of the first half hour and it was Ranger who capitalised. A free kick was whipped into the box from the byline, looped over O’Keeffe and all was square. Mooncoin dug in for the final quarter of an hour and when a draw looked on the cards it was substitute Moore who kept Celtics march on full swing. Ball into the box from Kavanagh, laid down to Moore by K. Dowley and the team went wild. Moore tapped into an empty net ??? ( hon Moore)
