A huge well done to our U13A Championship team for their terrific 2-1 victory against Moyne Villa 👏👏.
The match kicked off with Kinvara dominating possession, facing a resilient Moyne Villa defence. Despite the initial challenge, a strategic switch of play led to a well-deserved goal by Eoin, putting Kinvara ahead 1-0 at half-time. The fast Astro surface posed a challenge, prompting Kinvara to make tactical adjustments and introduce fresh legs.
In a tightly contested game, Moyne Villa managed to equalize early in the second half, setting the stage for a thrilling end to the match. Kinvara responded with increased effort, making further changes that paid off as they began moving the ball quickly and applying pressure. This persistence resulted in a decisive goal, with Leon finishing to the top corner from the edge of the box. The team showcased excellence in goalkeeping, defending and attacking throughout the match. Each player's contribution, from strategic plays to individual skill, played a crucial role in securing the victory.
A special thank you to Moyne Villa for hosting the game, and recognition to Edward Ward for his outstanding refereeing, ensuring a fair and well-executed match.
