Ladies Friendly: Cahir Park 1 – 3 Mooncoin Celtic

Our young ladies side travelled to rain soaked Cahir on Sunday evening and were not to be put off by the non stop down pour.

After a cagey first half with both sides jostling for the breakthrough, it was Cahir Park who took an early lead with a shot from distance that skidded off the surface. Back came the girls and dominated with plenty chances created with goals coming from Ella Brennan, Emily Blackmore and Sommer Grant to send everyone home happy.

Good run out for all 17 on duty with valuable experience gained by our younger girls. Thanks to Cahir Park for hosting us in their fabulous facilities.

U14a Girls League: Piltown 4 – 0 Mooncoin Celtic

U14 A Girls We made the short spin yesterday up to Piltown to play the league contenders on their home turf.

Given Piltowns current good form we expected it to be a hard game and sure enough Piltown came at us strong from the start. Piltowns first goal came not long into the game with goal #2 coming later in the first half… our girls battled hard to prevent the consistent attack from Piltown and also managed to break out to attack themselves.

The second half was a similar story with both sets of players pushing hard. Piltown got two more for their persistence in the second half to bring the score to finish at 4-0 to the home side.

While it wasn’t our day to make a mark, it was definitely a step the right direction for this team.

Big thanks to the Piltown coaches, team & referee for nice morning of football

U11A Boys League:
Villa 2 – 0 Mooncoin Celtic

A flat first half was to prove costly for this side who had gone 6 games unbeaten up until today.

A scrappy goal midway through the half saw Villa take the lead and we didn’t really trouble the home keeper in the first half.

Second half was a different story with the boys dominating and Villa relying on the break.

The post was to stop Ryan Sutton equalising and Jack Twomey rattled the crossbar with a bullet header to deny us while we had numerous corners with no luck and unfortunately Villa broke in the last minute to grab the three points.

U11F Boys League: Mooncoin Celtic record win vs St. Joseph’s

TJ was captain today as the lads put 7 goals away in a game played in wet cold conditions.

It would have been far more but for the heroics of the St. Joseph’s goalie particularly before the break. Shane scored the first two, the first one slotted away after a lovely pass from Eoin B.

The second was another tidy finish after his first shot was saved. Goal 3 was an unfortunate backpass with their keeper wrong-footed. Liam opened the second half scoring with a low hard shot from the edge of the box which the keeper let through his legs.

His next effort was saved by the keeper and bundled over the line by Donncha. Some great midfield play from Donncha saw him put Billy through on goal with the keeper to beat and he made no mistake with an unerring strike into the top corner.

The goal of the day however was from Eoin W who, as the ball fell to him outside the area whipped the ball into the keeper’s right giving him no chance.
