U13 result: Mooncoin Celtic 1 Kilmacthomas 3

The u13s took to the field this evening for their opening game of the season and were very unlucky not to get the points.

The team played brilliantly in the first 20 minutes and were rewarded with a goal credited to Daniel after a deflection with some great play in the build up from back to front.

Just before half time however the sides were level after a half cleared corner fell to a kilmac man outside the box who’s shot was well saved by Jake but the striker reacted quickest to tap it home

1-1 half time

The second half started well but an injury to Steven Brennan ten minutes in changed the momentum of the game and kilmac got the lucky break when a mix up at the back left them 2 on 1 with the keeper in one of the easiest offside decisions a referee will ever have to make but waved play on and kilmac duly obliged to make it 2-1.

Good chances came and went for mooncoin who on another night could have scored 2 or 3 goals but it wasn’t to be and with 5 minutes left kilmac sealed the game with a 3rd goal.

A great performance by the lads and the score line really doesn’t tell the story.
Good days ahead for this bunch very soon.
