Windgap 2-12, Mooncoin 1-12
It is oft times said that what is rare is beautiful, and wins up Windgap way are not as plentiful as they would like. But when they come down the track, they embrace them. They have won a few titles up there, so winning is not a stranger either to them. They continue to box above their weight, and they do as much as your premier club relatively speaking.

And that is how it panned out in Mooncoin on Saturday evening when the locals grabbed goals for sport, and didn’t get into the winners enclosure, while the visitors kept on slipping the ball over the Mooncoin bar, stuck on a brace of goals when the opportunity arose, and ‘twas they who took the League points, for the simple reason that they were better at doing the ordinary things well.
