U12 result: Mooncoin Celtic 4 Piltown B 2

Piltown came to town this morning. It was a perfect day for football . We started like a steam train pressing them high up the pitch . Jamie Croke chased and harried their back four into numerous mistakes and it was down to his hard work that he latched onto a hopefull ball n crashed the ball to the net to take an early lead. Our back four provided a launching pad for attack after attack giving piltown no sight of goal. The silky skills of finbar purcell and billie delahunty terroised the piltown defence and soon led to finbar slotting home 2 quick goals leaving us 3.0 up at the break. We started the 2nd half like we ended the 1st with flowing attacking football. Canice kinsella owned the centre of the park and snuffed out the threat of the extra piltown midfielder. 10 mins into the 2nd half our pressure paid off as we recieved a penalty. Canice stood up and calmly blasted the ball to the net . Piltown threw everything at us but the back 5 of paddy t murphy, alex kennedy, sean kearns, liam joy and matthew walsh were outstanding not giving an inch. However we conceded two late consolation goals in the final moments with the final whistle in sight.
Man of the match was finbar purcell with the full back 5 running him very close. Best performance of the year from this group.
