A bumper Bank Holiday Monday saw the u13b boys take a trip in to Poleberry to meet Bohs in the Cup quarter final.
This was a true cup tie from the first minute with Bohs having the upper hand in play in the 1st 10 minutes but then out came a bolt of a shot from Daniel outside the box and it was 1-0 to Mooncoin.
No more than a minute after tip off and some clever play by Conor, slide in Sean who out foxed the right back in the box and he slipped the ball past the keeper for 2-0.
But this was a battling Bohemians team who got straight back in to the match, with not one but two cracking shots from their No. 10. and within 5 mins it was 2-2.
The Mooncoin lads composed themselves and just before the break Sean was within the D outside the box and unleashed a mighty shot to make the score 3-2 at half time.
There was plenty of discussion at halftime and there was more control of the ball seen in the 2nd half and finer passing. The Mooncoin lads then executed a fine corner kick routine and Ethan got an awesome flick to make it 4-2.
It was no surprise that Bohs came storming back looking to get back in to the game, but the Mooncoin defense held firm with a couple of a great saves by Eoin and some excellent clearances and tackles by the back four.
The team moves on to a cup semifinal on May 12th, with Sean O’D holding the MoM award from this game with 2 goals and an assist.
