Youths Result Mooncoin 6 kilmacow 2

A cold windy ashgrove set the scene for the clash with neighbours Kilmacow .
It took us a while to get going in this game with the sticky conditions and poor passing causing us untold issues early on.
Lee Tracey opened the scoring after 15 minutes when he picked up the ball out wide and beat two defenders to slide the ball to the bottom corner .This settled us down and our midfield started dominating their patch with good possession and a few good passes through midfield opened the Killmacow defence for Lee to slip a pass to James Delahunty to calmly finish for 2 nil.
Unfortunately our concentration dropped a notch and we were duly punished when an opposing midfielder struck a great shot to the net .That was the peoverbial kick in the backside that was needed as we got on top in most areas of the pitch and Ben Fitzpatrick struck a 25 yard effort that sent us to half time 3-1 ahead.
Goal number four arrived early in the second half when our relentless pressure forced a free kick on the edge of the box and Lee was on hand to fire a shot over the wall and past the keeper.
Kilmacow responded immediately with a brilliantly struck free kick of their own to reduce the lead to two goals .
An improvement in our work rate and crisper quicker passing got us on the front foot again and this enabled us to seal the points just after the hour mark.
Goal five was scored by Conor Stacey when he latched on to a loose ball and beat a defender before playing a clever ball into James Delahunty who laid off a great pass for Conor to run onto and hit it a sweet curling shot from 30 yards that flew into the top corner. A goal that would grace any level of the game and this lad made it look so easy.
James scored his second soon after to make it 6-2 .
The lads saw out the remainder of the game with a good possession display and limited the opposition to few long range efforts .
Well done lads on a good solid performance.
Home to Ballinroad next sunday and hopefully Santa might call early with a clean sheet that the management are desperate for 😂😂
Big thanks to all who came today to support the lads in Baltic conditions.

Little bit of history

Tomorrow a little bit of history will be made with two of our girls included in the Waterford Girls development squads at u13 and u15 respectively. Emily Blackmore will play with the u13 squad at 12.00 against South Tipperary, followed by Ciara O’Keeffe in the u15 squad at 2pm against South Tipperary again. Both games take place in the wonderful Cahir Park complex. The very best of luck to both girls from all in Mooncoin Celtic.

WSFL Under 14 C League Mooncoin Celtic 1 vs Ballyduff 2

A disappointing result to a game we should have walked away with all 3pts from. However luck wasn’t on our side today. A big shake up the line up seemed to pay dividends for us as we had most of the possession throughout. We brought a tough physical game Ballyduff today and were by far the better side. Ballyduff opened the scoring today after a mistake at the back. We drew level early in the second half. We pressed and pressed but couldn’t find an opening and in the last few minutes a dodgy penalty decision took the game away from us. We had 16 in the squad today and they all deserved to be players of the match as everyone gave 110%.. well done to all in involved and 2019 is going to be exciting for this bunch of players..

Fixtures for the weekend

Tomorrow:
U12 home to Abbeyside, kick off 10.30
With this squad improving with every game, the coaches will be confident of securing three points in this one.

U14 home to Ballyduff, kick off 12.30
Two wins followed by two defeats have shown the tight margins in this league. Two hard training sessions midweek will have the lads ready for the league leaders.

2a home to Dungarvan, kick off 2pm.
It feels like an eternity since this squad played with very few games taking place in this league in general. Hopefully the rustiness won’t be too bad.

Sunday:
Youths home to Kilmacow, kick off 2pm
After last week’s entertaining game against the Villa last week where they kept into A league leaders throughout, the boys will hope to stay on track in the league against near neighbours Kilmacow.

Support for all teams is most welcome.

Big well done to Emily Blackmore

Big well done to Emily Blackmore who has been selected for the Waterford girls u13 squad for this weekend’s game against south Tipperary.

Following on from Ciara O’Keeffe’s selection at u15 level, it is great news for the recently established girls section. With Emily u12 aswell for the coming season, she will be a busy young lady. Trials have been held the last number of weeks with a few other of our girls taking part in the u12 trials, so we’ll keep the fingers crossed that we might have another one or two representatives at development squad level.
Best of luck at the weekend Emily.
