A bright start from Trim saw them take the game to Torro but with no reward. Chance after chance went by. Paul Campbell was unlucky to see his header come back of the crossbar after good work from Mark McCormack down the left. Aaron Newman made plenty of chances with his runs down the right. Just before half time Torro were awarded a penalty when the referee adjudged that Michael Corrigans well timed challenge in the box was a foul. Torro scored from the spot kick and Celtic found themselves one down at half time. As has been the case all year Trim were not going to lie down and defeat was not an option. Corrigan and Campbell took control of the midfield and Campbell was rewarded with a goal when he finished of a well worked movement through the middle. Trim went in search of the winner and Richie Fitzsimons was best placed at the back post to ensure Mark McCormacks goal bound header crossed the line. With 15 mins remaining Torro started to press for an equalizer and it took a good save from Barry O’Callaghan to tip over a shot from outside the box. Then O’Callaghan made another fantastic save from the Torro striker from 5 yards out. Trim went up the field and finished off the game when Campbell again finished well inside the box.
