We met League Champions Ballinroad in the much anticipated cup final. Mooncoin put Ballinroad under a lot of pressure in the first half and had enough chances to take the game. But it was Ballinroad who took a 1-0 lead into half time after a shot from distance took a wild deflection and spun in off the post.
2 sloppy early second half goals put the game well into Ballinroad’s favour. As Mooncoin pushed for a lifeline in the game it was Ballinroad who struck on the counter attack putting the game beyond us.
4-0 turned out to be the final score but not a true reflection on the game.
Congratulations to Ballinroad on an impressive league and cup double, showing they were the best team in the division all season.
The Mooncoin lads can hold their heads high and the future is bright for this great bunch.
