U11F Boys: Kilmacthomas 1 – 2 Mooncoin Celtic

The match began with a minute’s applause to honour Vicky Phelan who sadly passed away this week.

Donncha wore the armband today and led by example with a dominant midfield performance. Mooncoin battled well in the first half without creating any notable chances. We were unlucky late in the half when an attempted clearance went straight into the goal.

Amends were made within a couple of minutes when Eoin’s shot from outside the area burst the back of the Kilmacthomas net, that’s 4 in 4 games for him.

1-1 at half time and fresh legs in the second half saw Mooncoin press forward with Shane’s shot being parried by their keeper to Billy on the left of the area who rifled home the winner.

Kilmacthomas had chances to equalise late on but two attempts went wide and one was bravely saved by TJ in the goal with his legs. Donncha was unlucky when his shot hit the crossbar near the end.

The victory belonged to Mooncoin however to remain top of the table with a 100% record.
