Review of the last Week

We start with last Friday evening where our academy group headed towards neighbours Piltown for a series of games for all boys and girls. A beautiful sunny evening with lots of thrills and spills but most importantly fun. Big thanks to all in the ever impressive Kildalton Park for hosting us.

U11D League Result
Villa 2 Mooncoin Celtic 2
A cracker of a game on the astro in Villa with a draw being the fairest result. We went in at half time 1 up after an excellent passing move from goalkeeper James through Bobby, Tadhg, Eoin and finishing with Liam tucking away the opener. Second half saw Villa come in to the game and they got a deserved equaliser. With time just up Villa thought they had won the game from a corner which was headed home but up we went and Denis scrambled home a corner from Tom.

Ferrybank 5
League leaders Ferrybank proved way too strong for the boys who weren’t at their best but we are sure they’ll have better days ahead.

Our youngest group came up against a physically stronger Johnville side and found the going tough but still battled on throughout with Henry and Harry grabbing our goals in John’s Park.

A tough game against Dungarvan in sunny Suir Crescent resulted in three points heading to west Waterford. Goals on the day were through Cathal Delaney Morahan with a brace.

Girls U14B League Result
Carrick United 0
Mooncoin Celtic 6
A warm morning in coolnamuck saw three more points secured but not without a fine fight from a young Carrick side who played super passing football throughout from start to finish and will be a team to watch out for in the future. Goals on the day from Lexi, Briona, Sophie, Anna, Taylor and Briona sees the girls step closer to hopefully league honours.

Carrick United 3
League leaders got a fright on a warm sunny afternoon with goals from Áine and Aoibhe giving Carrick a scare after a right battle.

U12A League Result
Mooncoin Celtic 0
Ferrybank 0
After a few tough single goal defeats, the boys were determined to get a result in this one and the clean sheet was number one priority. Few chances for both teams throughout but no goals.

U12D League Result
St Saviours 0
Mooncoin Celtic 5
A very good win for the lads against a young Saviours side. Goals on a bright Monday evening from Shay, Billy, Max and Pete saw us secure three points on offer.

U14B League Result
Mooncoin Celtic 4
Piltown 3
After last week’s disappointing defeat against Kilmacow, the boys were hopeful of a better run out in this derby match but found themselves three down mid way through the second half but amazingly pulled themselves back in to it and won the game right at the death with goals on the day from Cathal 3 and Will. Bradley again was in top form keeping the boys in it for long periods with numerous saves.

Bohs 3
A fast start saw us race in to a two goal lead through Marcos and Emmet but Bohs pulled one back immediately. Second half saw us have plenty of possession but two goals from Bohs saw three points go to the boys in red and black. Improved performance from this group, results will follow for sure.

Final mention must go to the u12 Waterford Girls Development Squad who unfortunately exited at the semi final stage of the All Ireland Competition after a 1 nil defeat against MGL which was very tough on this squad. We had two coaches involved here with JP Byrne and Ritchie Lynch.
