Captain for the day Sean led the team out for the coin toss. A minute’ silence was then held before kick off as a mark of respect to Pauline O’Brien who passed away this week.
A dogged performance first half saw Mooncoin unlucky to go in at the break 2 down however. An outstanding save from Fionn was followed in over the line for the first. Similarly unlucky for the second as again another great save was followed up by a Park Rangers forward. The visitors had no joy down our left with Eoin covering well for Sean all game.
Some great midfield play from Aaron allowed Cian to break forward but his shot was held by the keeper. Two injuries at the break saw a number of changes and Mooncoin opted to go with 2 up top. It wasn’t to be however and the visitors doubled their advantage.
A late chance created brilliantly by Charlie was unfortunately saved near the death. This group of boys are improving all the time and will get their rewards yet.
Special thanks to Dragons’ Den for sponsoring our jerseys. Next match away to Bohs in two weeks time.
