Celtic’s Jared Akigbesote wasted no time as he blasted the opening goal on 6 minutes after a good through ball from David Boyle on the left.

However, Celtic were caught out on an Oldcastle corner on 16 minutes when they failed to clear the cross and Oldcastle took advantage and tied the game at 1-1.

Two minutes later O’Hare repaid the complement and chipped a delightful ball over the top to the on running Molloy. He went around the keeper and finished in style to give the Trim boys a 3-1 halftime lead. Within a minute of the restart, Molloy added his second.

Ten minutes later, he completed his hat trick after an excellent through ball from Joey Cole left him one on one with the keeper. He kept his shot low and hard to beat the Oldcastle keeper. The game then fizzled out with some sloppy play from both teams but with a few minutes remaining Harry Cottrell was unlucky to find his 25 yard strike come back off the crossbar and the game finished 1-5 as Celtic remain top of the table with 7 wins from 7. Best for Celtic were James Molloy, Joey Cole and Kris Gorman.
