There was a large gathering of players from Waterford and Cork for a U15 and U13 girls blitz of football in Carriganore at the weekend and there were 3 representatives from Mooncoin Celtic with Ciara O’Keeffe playing at U15 level and Emily Blackmore, Mia Ponce de Leon playing at the u13 level.
There were not quite halves but 3 sections played in 30 minute stints. Ciara played a good part of the 2nd and 3rd segments, confident on the ball and strong on the tackle. The u15 game ending in a draw.
In the u13 match Emily scored 2 goals in the 3rd stint, the second goal was all about being in the right place at the right time, and no better person than Emily to score that one. Mia played in goal for the 3rd stint and pulled off some good saves, the best being a one on one situation to deny a Cork attacker that was through on goal. Mia kept a clean sheet and Waterford u13 girls ran out winners of their match.
A great showing from all 3 Mooncoin girls and hopefully more to come in 2020.
