Carrick United B 2 Mooncoin 3

Both teams played out a cracking match on a cold Saturday morning. Mooncoin applied huge pressure straight from the start but our defence coped well. However after 15 minutes Mooncoin were rewarded for their pressure with a good team goal. They kept going forward and were awarded a penalty, our keeper Pete Keane touched it onto the crossbar but Mooncoin scored off the rebound. At half time we made a number of changes to our team and right from the off we played better. We had a number of chances but the Mooncoin keeper pulled off a number of great saves. Leon Kennedy did some great link up play with Karl McCoy which ended with an own goal from the Mooncoin centre back. We kept up the pressure and we got our second goal straight after with a good finish by our left midfielder Celab. Both teams where evenly matched with Mooncoin getting the winner with a great free kick from 20 yards

Carrick United B 3 Villa B 1

Both teams were well matched from the very beginning, both keepers being tested with a few worthy shots on goal. The first man to find the net however was Sean Bourke from Carrick in the 15th minute. Villa responded shortly afterwards with an excellent top corner goal which just beat keeper Cian Power. With a half time score at 1-1 both teams came out strong but Carrick seemed to have the upper hand with a defence which Villa could not seem to penetrate. A clean pass from Nathan Casey was driven home by Lee Keane midway through the half and a superb goal by midfielder Ciaran Power sealed Villa’s fate shortly afterwards.

Both the under 13A and 11A away fixtures were postponed.
