3rd and 4th Class County Futsal Champions 2011

Recently our 3rd and 4th class boys competed in the annual FAI Futsal County Championship. Futsal is the offical FIFA version of indoor soccer. On the day there were 9 teams all viaing for the title of ‘County Champions’ and the standard was very high. Moycarkey started in a group of 3 teams along with Ardfinnan N.S.¬†and Leugh N.S. Moycarkey played a very disciplined style of football and navigated their way into the semi finals after 3 wins and 1 draw, conceeding no goals along the way. The team stuck with this style and the success continued as they won their semi final 1-0. In the final they were up against a very strong team and for the first time in the competition¬†they found themselves behind after conceeding in the first few minutes. With time running out and hope fading John Coffey sprung from the bench to hit home an equaliser with a minute to go. Then, when penalties seemed on the cards, Moycarkey were awarded a penalty after a handball. Kyle Shelly stepped up and powered the penalty home to give the game and the title of County Champions, to the boys in 3rd and 4th class from Moycarkey! Well done to the whole panel!
