Match Report

A Challenge Cup victory away to Rathkenny Rovers put the icing on the cake of a memorable weekend for Trim Celtic. Celtic were 2-0 up within ten minutes when Mark Leavy's dangerous cross caused havoc in the Rovers defence causing a defender to put through his own net. Another Leavy cross saw Donohoe double his side's lead with a superb control and finish before the Trim captain added his second before the break. Rathkenny pulled a goal back in the second half but Donohoe's hat trick goal, a powerful drive that proves to hot for the keeper to handle, restored Celtic's three goal cushion. Brian Faulkner was introduced In the second half making a long awaited return to action after an extended period on the sidelines due to injury. In the final minute Paul Munnelly's superb cross found Darragh Scannell to round up the scoring.
