Duleek 4 – 1 Trim Celtic
Halftime: 3 – 1
Trim Celtic scorer: Adam Campbell
Trim Celtic paid the price for some sloppy defending but the 4 – 1 scoreline was a bit flattering for Duleek. Celtic fell behind after for minutes from a corner. Trim rallied after this with John Kelly (twice) and Dominic Martin both hitting the woodwork. Against the run of play Duleek broke twice to give them a comfortable lead. Once again Celtic rallied with Adam Campbell pulling a goal back with an excellent shot from 20 yards.
Despite their best efforts Trim Celtic failed to find a second goal and were hit on the break again before the final whistle.
Best for Trim Celtic were John Kelly, Danny Quinn and Gordon Flood.
Trim Celtic: Fergus Fagan, David Campbell, Tommy Boyle, John Kelly, Damien Dempsey, Adam Campbell, Stephen Jones, Dominic Martin, Danny Quinn, Gordon Flood, Alex Geraghty.
Subs: David Malone (for Damien Dempsey), Paul Munnelly (for Adam Campbell)
