2nd div result: DUNGARVAN 0 MOONCOIN 0

A trip into the unknown for Saturday night lights in Dungarvan to open the 2nd division season .
A few late withdrawals from the squad left us with possibly the youngest Mooncoin team ever to represent the club , with the squad made up of 9 of the 15 players being 18 yrs old or younger .
Despite the perceived lack of experience we took the game to the home team and played some great football in the opening half hour.
To be fair to Dungarvan they weathered a few storms and troubled us on the counter attack with their speedy striker but the chaps at the back were resolute and unforgiving in their defending.
The game was allowed to flow by some brilliant refereeing and chances were missed by both sides over the course of the second 45 mins.
I might be biased , but given the chances created we were unfortunate not to take the 3pts
A no score draw sent us away up the N25 with mixed feelings on the outcome.
We’ll go again Wednesday evening against close neighbours Portlaw , where your sure too see an even younger team on view !!!!
Well done to all involved good point 👏👏
Special thanks to Michael Murphy for his sponsorship of a fantastic new set of gear , much appreciated by all involved 👍🏻
