4th Division Result: Crusaders 0 Mooncoin Celtic 1

A wonder strike from Stephen Blackmore was the difference between these two sides on a soggy pitch. Chances came and went for the lads all day with Stephen Blackmore being guilty of 7 or 8 chances but only one goal to show for it, the one that mattered thank god. The return of Mick ‘golden boots’ Foran also boosted the side as three points were secured. Abbeyside away await next Sunday morning at 11.

U12 Result: Mooncoin Celtic 3 St Paul’s 1

St Pauls came to town on another wet and wild day. Conditions were less than ideal. We started playing into driving wind and rain . The 1st half was a dogged battle against the elements. Both teams struggled to play any flowing football and the score was 0.0 at the break. We took control of the 2nd half and two wonderful long range strikes from Canice Kinsella but us into a commanding 2.0 lead. We looked comfortable until St Pauls pulled 1 back with a rasping shot that gave Paddy T no chance in the goal. We fought tooth and nail to stay in the lead with the back line of Conor Byrne,Liam Joy , Jack Walsh and Alex Kennedy standing firm. With 2 mins to go Luke Horgan Geraghty found himself 1 on 1 with the keeper and calmly slotted home. Great squad performance today on a wet an heavy pitch. Man of the match Liam Joy with Anil Ramsaway a close 2nd.
