U17 Girls Mooncoin Celtic 0 – 2 Park Rangers

Yesterday’s game saw us take on table toppers Park Rangers in the U17s league .

It was a game that was filled with excitement a plenty .

The game started with what has now become the norm , a furious and fast pace , with both teams trying to edge themselves on top .

Ella Bailey and Grace O Toole were work horses today as they dealt with an ever persistent Park Rangers attack . Both ladies left it all on the pitch , backed up by team mates Cayla Dunphy and the always reliable Ciara O Keeffe .

Sommer Grant seemed to be everywhere at once yesterday on the pitch , clearing and spraying balls as the need arose and also in the middle of the field Laura Flynn really impressed on her first game back after a long spell out due to injury . Evelyn Holden and Ciara Corcoran also put in a mighty shift for us yesterday .

Up front Becky Brogan and Casey Moore , did all they could to break down a resolute Park Rangers defence but it was proving to be a difficult task ….
The introduction of Georgia Grant and Emily Blackmore freshened up the squad on the half hour mark , by when the half time break arrived , Park Rangers had taken the lead 0-1 which the took into the second Half .

The second half saw some very good passages of play from the girls and we created a few chances , none if which we managed to capitalise on … Kayleigh Smith and Katie Tolan took to the pitch mid way through the second half and both players put in a big effort .

Despite this , Park Rangers added another goal to their tally .
Making it 2-0 which is how the game finished up . Mia Ponce De Leon was once again fearless between the sticks , and was vocal and encouraging to all her players throughout the game . The result didn’t go our way today , but all the girls put their heart and soul into yesterday’s game .

Also a Shoutout Alanah Jordan who joined us in the past few weeks , Alanah didn’t see any game time yesterday , but was a great support to the girls during the game .

U12 Boys: Ballyduff 3 – 3 Mooncoin Celtic

Great match today away to Ballyduff, not an easy place to go.

Early goal from Ethan settled the nerves as it went in off both posts. Ballyduff equalised in the first half. Shane had one of his characteristic mazy runs and kept his head to walk the ball into the goal to go in 2-1 at half time. Ballyduff got a headed goal at the back post, before Ethan got his second, this time just off one post.

Ballyduff were stubborn and never gave up and were rewarded with their No7 getting a second goal with a well placed shot giving Will no chance in goals. In the end it could have gone either way, but the lads saw it out and 3-3 draw was a fair result. Well done to Conor B on his u12 league debut today.
