Score: 1 - 6
Brian Faulkner's third hat trick of the season helped see Trim Celtic through to the next round of the Challenge Cup against Kells Celtic. Faulkner himself opened the scoring when he headed Zak McGowan's cross home on 16 minutes and the lead was doubled two minutes later with the resurgent Paul Campbell firing home Colm Carney's lay off. Campbell then turned provider when his chipped through ball found Faulkner who rounded the keeper to strike home his second.<br> Campbell made it 4-0 on the hour mark converting a penalty after Carney was taken down by the keeper and three minutes later Faulkner completed his hat trick following a scramble in the box. Substitute Aaron Newman curled home from the 18 yard box before McNamara pulled one back for the Kells side. Riordan cleared off the line as Kells pushed for a second but Trim Celtic ran out winners to book their spot in the next round.
