Youths Result: Lismore 2 Mooncoin Celtic 5

A long Sunday morning trip, which nearly never happened after a mishap with our bus on departure, eventually saw the lads secure 3 points in a very sticky encounter with little given between two very competitive teams. A quick start saw the boys 2 up after 10 minutes and 3 up with 20 gone, and 4-1 at half time gave Lismore some hope going into the 2nd half. Goals in the first half were scored by Aaron McLoughlin, Adam Croke, Ryan O’Grady and Rudi. In the 2nd half the lads displayed real composure and were never under any real pressure. Padraic Murphy drilled one from 35 yards to make it 5-1 with 20 minutes left. Lismore did score a late penalty rebound after Nathan saved well but lismore followed up faster. A good day had by all in West Waterford. Man of the Match today was Adam Croke who eventually got his goal.
