Youths Result: Abbeyside 2 Mooncoin Celtic 1

A disappointing result and a well deserved three points for the home side. We never got going in the baking heat in Stucco Lane. Abbeyside took a deserved lead after sloppy defending and were well on top in the first half and went in 1 up at half time.
The second half saw a little improvement in the lads and they created several chances but didn’t have that killer instinct when it came to finishing. We did equalise with 20 minutes left when a peach of a ball from Paraic Murphy put Adam Croke clear and his square ball was put away by a home defender. Another couple of chances came their way but Abbeyside were the team that was finishing stronger and deservedly got a winner when a snap shot from 20 yards nestled in the roof of the net. A day to forget for this young squad and the Club must take full responsibility for this defeat in the baking sun in Abbeyside.
