Girls U12B League: Portlaw 6 – 1 Mooncoin Celtic White

The result against Portlaw does not reflect how competitive the game was throughout. Maria Dunphy scored an excellent goal and we were unlucky not to score more, with a shot of the crossbar and a few straight into their goalkeeper’s hands.

Molly played a captain’s role throughout and Gwyn Dermody was the Player of the Match.

Our young team was ably assisted by a lot of u10s who were brilliant and will be a force to be reckoned with when their league starts in a couple of weeks.

A huge thanks to Watmor Construction for sponsoring our U12 jerseys.

Sponsored by Mooncoin Pharmacy

With Todays visit to Park Rangers this Mooncoin u16 team got themselves off the mark and registered 3 points .

We got ourselves on the scoring sheet after 10 minutes when Ella Brennan scored her first goal of this season. From some clever passing .

Park Rangers pulled it back on the twenty minute mark ….

We saw chances come our way but we didn’t capitalise on them.

Some good work by Aoibhe Rees paid dividends after she made a run down the wing , getting a shot away to Front of goal where Emily Blackmore finished it to the net.

Eimear Quinn and Saoirse Corcoran played very well today in defence , along with Kate McGrath and Niamh Reddy both of whom were really on top form today .

U11A League Result: Dungarvan United 4 – 0 Mooncoin Celtic

A very solid opening 20 minutes saw very little between the teams but a couple of lapses in concentration saw 2 quick fire goals which was a little harsh on the boys. In the second half we chased the deficit but couldn’t create any clear cut chances. Two goals in the final 10 minutes put a flattering look on the scoreline. Tough harsh lesson against a very good Dungarvan United team.

U12A Girls: Dungarvan United 6 – 1 Mooncoin Celtic

A tough opening game for the girls in Kilrush Park, home of the Senior Ladies League Champions, in a game against an impressive home side who done the basics well.

A solid start to the game saw Dungarvan take the lead but Siobhán O’Donnell equalised very quickly. Dungarvan then went in to cruise control and put away 5 goals without reply. A tough day but better will follow we are sure.

U13B League: Villa 1 – 0 Mooncoin Celtic

Sunny morning away to Villa was the destination for the u13s first match of the season. Opening 15 minutes was cagey with both sides sussing each other out. 5 minutes later Villa opened the scoring with a cross ball diagonal that the left winger timed his run to hit the ball past Bradley from close range.

In the second half we made a few changes and were stronger going close a couple of times but it wasn’t to be.

A close match ended with lots of Mooncoin pressure but no show for it. Bradley pulled off a couple of excellent saves to keep us fighting till the final whistle.

Ladies League Result: Mooncoin Celtic 0 – 1 Park Rangers

A game of two halves with a dominant first half put in by our girls but try as they might, that elusive breakthrough eluded them. Chance after chance after chance but no finished product. Park Rangers got on top just before half time and continued their period of dominance by scoring the crucial goal from an angled drive.

The away side continued to stay on top but luckily good goalkeeping and the woodwork kept the score at 1-0. As time ticked on, only a half chance came our way and Park Rangers held out for the 3 points.

A disappointing end to the season but the girls can be proud of the debut season in a really competitive league, especially the second half of the season where the younger girls grew in confidence. Plenty of positives to bring on to next season.

Great start for u14 Schoolboys squad

After a disappointing season last year Mooncoin U14B made a great start at home to Park Rangers, winning 7-5 in their first game on Saturday.

All players impressed with their skills and determination and played a great attacking game and were unlucky not to score more. Goal scorers were: Cathal Morahan – 1, Finn – 2 and Dylan McGrath – 1. Aoibhe Rees was outstanding and scored a hat trick in her debut appearance and is a great asset to the team.
