Late winner

In the first round of the senior football league Mooncoin were the visitors to Muckalee to take on the locals. On a blustery cold day it was Mooncoin who started well and took a two point lead ,Robert Shore opened the scoring for Muckalee and two further points from Michael Morrissey and a pointed free from Robert gave the home side a slender advantage at the break 0-4 to 0-3. A Bryan Byrne goal ten minutes into the second half looked to have put Muckalee on course for victory but a  wind assisted  Mooncoin side never gave up and they scored a late goal in injury time to claim the points.  Five players made their debuts at this level Conor Kinsella, Adrian Farrell, Jack Dowling, Brandon Sheehan and Richard Teehan , all doing well. Final score 1-5 to 1-6.
