Match Report

For the second time this season Trim Celtic and Kentstown played out an entertaining goal-less draw in a premier league game which meant there were no winners in the top half of the table this week. Celtic's point keeps them a point ahead of fourth placed Enfield but still six behind leaders Parkvilla. The game started brightly for Kentstown who pushed Celtic back with the wind behind them and it was another good display from the hoops' rearguard to keep the scores level. The closest we game to a goal was after thirty minutes when a vicious outswinging corner was clawed away by Trim 'keeper Kevin Dalton from under his bar and he was alive to the rebound to touch the follow up header over the bar. This was Dalton's second clean sheet in a row and stands testament to him and his back four as they gave up very few chances in either game. The second half was much better for Celtic with Andreas Lopez prominent throughout and the pace of Conor McGinley and Cian Russell causing problems for the Kentstown defenders. Indeed McGinley was unlucky not to net the winner when he was just beaten to a 50-50 ball by the outstretched leg of the Kentstown 'keeper to ensure the game finished all square. Bailieboro visit the MDL next week as Celtic look to continue their recent good form with another three points. Best on the day for Celtic were Oran Kirby, Adam Wilson and Evan deCourcey Tobin. Trim Celtic: Kevin Dalton, Eoin Gaffney, Mark Cunningham, Oran Kirby, Adam Wilson, Andreas Lopez, James Murray, Evan deCourcey Tobin, Daniel Coleman, Eoghan Lenehan, Luke Doyle Subs: Liam Reilly (for Doyle), Cian Russell (for Lenehan), Andrew Gibney (for Gaffney), Conor McGinley (for Reilly), Fionn McEvoy (for deCourcey Tobin), Jack Vaughan, Kevin McGowan
