Trim Celtic scorer: Alan Douglas
Trim Celtic suffered a heart breaking defeat at the hands of Kentstown in a nail biting penalty shoot-out. Trailing one nil at halftime Celtic battled back with Alan Douglas equalising with a fine strike and indeed Douglas was unlucky not to win the game for Celtic when he hit the crossbar late on. Celtic also had goalkeeper Eric Scanlon to thank for a string of excellent saves to keep them in the match. Kentstown went on to win the penalty shoot-out in sudden death.
