U12 Girls Result: Villa 6 Mooncoin Celtic 9

A second win for Mooncoin girls in just over two days. A final score of 9-6 was not looking likely when we went 2 down inside the first 5 minutes but a goal by Mollie Murphy on 10 minutes started a revival which left us 5-2 ahead at the break. Villa started well after halftime and pulled it back to 5-4 but we managed to keep our noses in front throughout, finishing strongly with Molly Quinn scoring a second half hat trick. Ella Brennan, Saoirse Drennan and a first half hat trick from Saoirse Dunphy all got on the scoresheet. The Villa star players were well marshalled by our defense and both goalkeepers (Aoibhinn and Hannah) pulled off a string of saves. This was an excellent squad performance with all of the subs getting game time. It is our policy to ensure that everyone gets to play as this is the only way that they will improve. This may mean that some of the results won’t go our way but the only way for the girls to develop the skills is in the heat of battle on the pitch. We have a big squad and players who couldn’t play tonight will get to play on Sunday against Bohs.
