U12 Girls: Mooncoin Celtic 4 -4 Park Rangers Red

Park Rangers Red got off to a flyer in Suir Crescent and were 2-0 up inside the first 5 minutes. They extended their lead to 3 before Mooncoin Celtic pulled one back just before half time.

Mooncoin really raised their game in the second half and brought the game back to 3-3. The Park Rangers keeper performed heroics in goal and they pulled ahead again but Mooncoin levelled it at 4-4 for a share of the spoils. Leah Twomey (2), Lexi Walsh and Aine O’Sullivan grabbed the goals for Mooncoin.

U16 Girls: Mooncoin Celtic record another win to stay top of the U16 league

On a lovely fresh Sunday afternoon Mooncoin u16s were at home to Ballyduff.

After a nervous start from our girls Ella Brennan made a run from a wide position and with a tight angle fired across the keeper, off the post and into the back of the net to open the scoring for Mooncoin.

We created a number of chances but for the first 20 minutes took this time to settle and then we got into the groove…with another 2 goals from Ella Brennan to complete her hatrick and a hatrick from Emily Blackmore.

Sommer Grant also got on the score sheet after her 3 assists.

Player of the match was Luiseach O’Donohue who ran and battled for the full 80 minutes and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet herself. Ballyduff got on the score sheet with a late consolation.

Every player on the team today played outstanding and as always work ethic and determination prevailed. Another 3 points in the bag and top of the table to see out the end of the year. Merry Xmas!

Euro’s Prediction Competition Update

So the Euro’s are at the Semi-Final stage and we have a very interesting scenario emerging from the MCFC Euro Prediction competition.

While no one named all four semi-finalist, there is 1 person that named 3 of them and they have a nice lead in the competition. However that same person cannot get much from “Predict the total goals” nor “Name the top goalscorer” and so the 4 people chasing are in with a big shout to take home the prize money, which stands at over €350.

The majority of chasers are not really looking for more goals, but if Harry Kane was to score 2 more, or Ciro Immobile was to score 3 then it would make the final prediction table a really close run competition.

Best of luck to all participants, and enjoy the matches all the way to the final.
