U12D Mooncoin Celtic 2 – Bohemians 1

It was great to be back in action and the Ashgrove pitch was well laid out for the visit of Bohemians.

There was a quick hectic start to the game with over a months worth of football coming out in a 5 minute spell with a few chances for both sides but it was Mooncoin that took the lead with a fine shot from Sean O’Donoghue.

There was great skill to see from both sides with individual breaks and some fine passing. On the 15 minute mark the Mooncoin forwards but pressure on the Bohs defence and in the blink of an eye Sean O’Donoghue had the ball in the net again.

A minute or 2 from tip off Sean took a fine shot from outside the box which crashed against the cross bar and out of play. Nearly the hatrick but then Bohs got a foothold in the game and pulled a goal back which was full deserved.

The 2nd half was full of drama Bohs hit the bar and post a few times and there was fine saves from Cathal too. Not to be out done the Bohs keeper had to save from Ben, Conor, Ella and Charlie.
Mooncoin had mastered the break from defence to attack and while Bohs were great at applying pressure there was always a chance Mooncoin would score too.
In end there were no goals in the second half and Mooncoin ran out winners.
Fair play to the whole squad, it was a true team effort from all 12 players. This team remains unbeaten in 2020 and they just can’t wait for the next match.
