U16 Girls play off semi final Dungarvan United 4 Mooncoin Celtic 1

We travelled to Dungarvan on Thursday evening for the semi-final playoff of the league. Unfortunately, it wasn’t our day. The girls tried their hardest , but the recent amount of hard games to get us to this point caught up with us. Dungarvan took an early lead, but we struck back through a Molly Quinn tap in. Dungarvan retook the lead before halftime. In the second half, we tried to tweak our formation, but it proved unsuccessful. Dungarvan extended their lead on 63 minutes and again on 77 minutes. Our girls were exhausted at this stage, and the game went away from us. Fulltime Dungarvan 4 Mooncoin Celtic 1.
This game brings the curtain down on our season, and we, the coaches, are very proud of every girl that came on our journey this season. It started off slow, but through everyone’s efforts and determination, our season got better and better, resulting in us being involved in both Cup and league semifinals. To the girls that are moving onto u18s next season we wish you all the best. To the girls who are staying we will have girls coming up from the double winning u14 squad, so we think that the future is going to be bright.
Thanks for all your help throughout the year and we’ll hopefully go that extra mile next time.
Hopefully everyone can make the Soccer Marathon on Sunday where player of the year and most improved player awards will be given out.
JP, Amy, Chris and Buggy.
