U12D League Result Park Rangers 1 Mooncoin Celtic 0

The only game we played this weekend and a 50/50 gane unfolded out in Park Rangers with very little between the 2 sides. Shay M did an excellent job breaking up play and using his dribbling to create plenty chances throughout the game while Billy F was using his pace on the right side of midfield to create a chance every time he got the ball. We were also unlucky in the first half through Pete D who also had a shot saved. Patrick O’H did a great job in the goal making plenty saves throughout. 2nd half was very similar with both teams creating chances but we unfortunately couldn’t find a goal today. Park Rangers smashed a volley into the top corner from just outside the box leaving Patrick rooted to the spot with nothing to do. Despite the result the boys gave it there all and have come on a long way from the start of the season and their hard work on the training ground is paying off. Standout performances for Billy F who was a danger every time he got the ball, Shay M who showed great leadership skills and dictated all play in the middle of the park, Patrick O’H who put on another super performance in the goal and Teddy D who was put in centre back for his first time in the second half and didn’t leave anything get past him.
