Trim Celtic crashed out of the Challenge Cup at the MDL grounds. Marsh squandered two good chances before Trim Celtic took the lead when Shane Ashe finished well at the second attempt after a good run. With their next attack Marsh equalised and shocked the Trim side by taking the lead before the break. Early in the second half Trim Celtic began to up their tempo and levelled when Paul Bartley finished from a corner. David Conway then put Trim 3 – 2 up when he blocked down a defensive clearance, rounded the last defender and fired past the advancing keeper. However Marsh fought back strongly and equalised again. With the game heading for extra-time Marsh grabbed a late goal which proved to be the winner.
