U14 Girls Result Mooncoin 0 Bohemians 6

An excellent performance by the MCFC girls who gave Bohs a real fight today, particularly in the first half. Bohs were only 1 goal up after 30 minutes and were lucky to be so, considering that Luiseach Donohue had a stonewall penalty turned down by the ref.

Indeed the performances by all of the Mooncoin girls were outstanding. Bohs were put under pressure from the very start and they came up against a resolute defence and the best goalkeeper in the league. Kate McGrath was a revelation at right-back. Katie Phelan also put in a great first half in the middle of the park. Bohs finally managed a second goal immediately before half-time after Mia had pulled off a string of excellent saves.

Bohs managed to gain the upper hand early in the second half but the tackles kept on coming from the Mooncoin girls. We made a number of changes either side of half-time with Leah W , pushing through the middle relentlessly to put us on the attack. A few late goals put an inaccurate gloss on the scoreline, but there were a lot of positives with the girls’ first run out of 2020.
