Match Report

Trim Celtic went up to abbey looking for three points to capitalise on Kingscourt's defeat the night before. 10 minutes in Teim found themselves one behind. As the half went on Celtic got to grips with the game and came close 3 times to equalising but a combination of the post and good goalkeeping saw them trailing one nil at half time. Ten minutes into the second half Marky Corrigan put Dimmy Higgins through one on one and he cooly finished. Celtic created numerous chances to take the lead but failed to convert and abbey broke with 20 minutes left and got themselves a free kick on the edge of the box which they scored from to take the lead. Following a few substitutions Celtic made a big push in the last ten minutes and Tommy Farrell equalised with 8 minutes to go from a great through ball from Dimmy Higgins and then got the winner for Celtic in the 90th minute. Best for Trim Dimmy Higgins, Conor Daly and Tommy Farrell.
