A large U12D squad made the trip out to Ballinroad for a lively encounter on Saturday morning. The lads started off a little slowly and Ballinroad took advantage and grabbed an early goal, but gradually and surely Mooncoin got themselves back into the game, stuck to the principles and kept playing football.
The defensive team of Cathal, Eoghan, Cormac and Thomas were solid and laid a strong platform as the chances started to come a plenty for Mooncoin in the 2nd half. There was a well taken goal by Conor W. mid way through the 2nd half and from there a number of chances were created. In the last 2 minutes Mooncoin hit the side netting at least 3 times so near and yet so far.
However as the final whistle blew the points were shared. That’s an unbeaten run for the lads in 2020 and a sure sign that they’re settled into the league now.
