NECSL Under 13 League

Trim Celtic 0 – 1 Kingscourt

Halftime: 0 – 0

Trim Celtic were caught with a sucker punch when Kingscourt stole all three points with a last minute goal direct from a free kick. Kingscourt had the better of the opening half and struck the psot in this period. In the second half Trim Celtic made the running with jamie Lee hitting the post and Colm Smith twice forcing the keeper into good saves. Celtic were made to pay for missed these opportunites as Kingscourt came up with the winner as the game was looking likely to be drawn.
