Match Report

In a game that ebbed and flowed on a glorious evening in Summerhill, a draw probably was a fair result overall. The Gunners started the better of the 2 teams and Ciaran Caulfield had a shot well saved by the Park Celtic keeper in the 1st minute. The Gunners kept pressing and David Boyle had a shot turned around the post by the keeper in the 11th minute. However Park Celtic took the lead totally against the run of play in the 17th minute with a speculative shot from the edge of the box. The Gunners continued to dominate despite this and Ciaran Caulfield had another fine effort just go narrowly wide after cutting in from the left wing. Just before half time ParkCeltic created a few chances and from a corner on the stroke of half time, disaster struck when a sliced clearance ending up in the corner of the Celtic net, despite the best efforts of James Bourke and Finn O’Connor on the line.
The Gunners needed to be quick out of the blocks in the 2nd half and to their credit they pulled a goal back in the 1st minute of the 2nd half. From a throw in by Josh Harris, Ciaran Caulfield squared the ball to David Boyle whose shot was parried by the keeper and Aaron Mc Cormack was lurking on the edge of the 6 yard box to tap the ball home. ParkCeltic got back into the game from this point on and but for a tremendous goal line clearance by Finn O’Connor in the 35th minute would have regained their 2 goal lead. Both sides had a few half chances after this but just when it looked like ParkCeltic were going to hold on to their lead, things changed when the Gunners were awarded a free kick near the side line on the right hand side of the box. David Boyle took the free kick with his left foot and the ball sailed in over the keeper to the back of the net. Right at the death ParkCeltic thought they had been awarded a penalty but to all of the Trim Celtic players and supporters relief the referee pointed for a goal kick. Best for the Gunners were Finn O’Connor, Josh Harris and Ciaran Caulfield.
Trim Celtic Gunners: James Bourke, David White, Josh Harris, Finn O'Connor, Blake Gibbons, Ciaran Caulfield, Donal McGale, Aaron McCormack, David Boyle, Wesley Gibbons, Jack Fagan.
