U13 result: Mooncoin Celtic 2 – Tramore 1

This team was determined going into this evenings game to be coming away with the 3 points come the final whistle and that they did.

A first half which was dominated by Mooncoin saw Jason Ryan, Daniel Roberts & Mikey Cronin all go close to breaking the deadlock in the first half. Eoin O’Callaghan and Stephen Brennan partnered up well down the left side and caused the Tramore defence a lot of problems with their pace, passing and pressing down if the ball. While the defence of Jake Moore, Mike O’Keefe, Ciara O’Keefe, Patrick Dermody and Mikey Cronin held strong keeping Tramore to very little chances created. 0-0 at half time.

Second half started strong again and a quality first time cross from Matthew Walsh saw the ball go over the centre backs head and fall to Jason Ryan who buried the ball into the net leaving the keeper with no chance of stopping it.

We kept attacking and it paid off as a scramble in the box saw the ball fall to Emily Blackmore at the back post who stayed calm to make sure she got the ball under control before taping it into an empty net. 2-0 Mooncoin.

We kept strong defensively and held Tramore only for a shot from far out saw the ball take an awful bounce in front of Jake Moore and go over his head to no fault of his own. Player of the game tonight was Jason Ryan who was unlucky not to come away with more than the 1 goal.

Up next for this team is Villa away this coming Saturday with a 3pm kick off.

A big squad was present for tonights game and apologies to all players who got little or no game time.
