Navan Cosmos vs Reserves

Sat 07 Jan 17
Score: 2 - 3

Match Report

Trim started positively with Dimmy Higgins and Eddie Murray looking dangerous up front. Cosmos were also looking good with Celtic's keeper having to make a few smart saves in goal. Trim broke the deadlock just after 10 mins through Higgins with a shot from outside the box which took a slight deflection leaving the keeper stranded. Higgins continued to pose problems for the Cosmos defence and was unlucky with a header against the post on the 25 minute mark . Trim continued to be the better team for most of the half and it was slightly against the run of play that Cosmos equalised with a 35 yard strike into the top corner 10 mins before the half time. Navan grew in confidence and scored again just before half time with a well taken finish from outside the box.
Both teams started the second half looking to score again with chances at either end. Cosmos were edging the second half and should have scored again on 60 mins with their striker blazing over from a great position. Trim began to get on top from then on and the pressure resulted in Dimmy Higgins being brought down in the box, Higgins converting the penalty himself. Trim began to play some good football and were unlucky not to take the lead with Scott O'Leary going close on a few occasions. Trim won another penalty and again Higgins finished it expertly to give Celtic victory.
