U12 result: Stradbally 1 Mooncoin Celtic 0

After a disappointing result last week this team were raring to go. A well fought battle in first half seen very little chances created. A 25yard Stradbally strike caught Jake Moore off his goal to put them 1-0 up at half time. But the never die attitude of this group seen us control the majority of the second half and captain of the day Patrick Dermody came close with a header going just over the bar.

u12 debutant Anil had the Stradbally full back run riot with his quick speed and skill only for the ref to keep giving free kick out every time he attacked the corner.

Another debutant Ben O’Hanlon was impressive with his close control and skill on the ball and could be what this team has been missing all season. Ben had 2 efforts come close. Well done to all involved keep battling and that win will come soon.

Man of Match was Liam Joy, who came on at half time and strengthened up the defence making some great last ditch clearances and hard but fair tackles.
