U14 Mooncoin Celtic 3 – Waterford Crystal 2

We couldn’t have asked for a better start as the game was only a few minutes old when Aidan Carroll (wearing runners) contested and won a header that seen Jason Ryan bring the ball into the box before slotting past the Crystal keeper. Not long later Stephen Brennan extended the score and made it 2-0. Jason Ryan swung a dangerous corner in from the left side which the Crystal defence couldn’t deal with and put it in their own goal to make it 3-0. Jasons corners were proven to be an issue for Crystal and he was unlucky not to get his second goal of the day as the ball rattled the crossbar direct from the corner. Crystal pulled one back before the break to make it 3-1. The second half seen Crystal put us under a lot of threat but the defence of Sherwan, Patrick, Liam and Mike held strong before a re-shuffle at the back as Liam had to leave the field after picking up an injury. Crystal got a second but this Mooncoin team held strong until the final whistle to take all 3 points. Need to mention our new goalkeeper Joe Delahunty who had another excellent game in his first season on the bigger goals, calm and collected from this young man in the goal.
