Youth result Kilmacow 1 Mooncoin 1

The sun set on our season tonight in Kilmacow and unfortunately our title hopes bit the dust following a 1-1 draw.
The home team were hungry for a result to avenge the defeat earlier in the season.
There weren’t too many high points or chances created in the first half and to be fair to the lads they were honest enough to acknowledge that themselves at half time.
The second half began with renewed energy and several chances were created as we looked to grab control of the game .
We slowly ramped up the pressure on our opponents and were rewarded when Dan Fewer played a neat pass into Dylan and he made no mistake with the finish after 75 mins.
The closing minutes were a nervous affair as the home team forced us deep into our own half with relentless pressure.
A quick throw into the box bobbled around and the hesitancy allowed the Kilmacow striker to lob it in to the roof of the net with time almost up.
A dissapoining few days with two tough games in quick succession and tonights performance was possibly a result of Sunday’s cup exertions.
As I’ve said before these young men have matured into a very good outfit and have a bright future in the game as the club moves onto an exciting new chapter with the pitch development.
As with any sport they’re are highs and lows, trophies won and near misses but as a management team we got the most satisfaction out of seeing improvement in everyone of the lads that were involved in the group during that time .A terrific bunch of lads with great team spirit and fantastic work ethic in each of them.
So I’ll sign off for this season with a big thanks to every player that came and performed for the club over the last two seasons.
