Match Report

Away to a good OMP team at Blackcastle on a cold evening wasn't the most inviting prospect but the teams provided a good tussle for those on the sideline. Right from the start it was clear that this was going to be a good contest with both teams getting stuck in all over the field. OMP played with a strong wind in the first half and pinned Trim back for long periods. But Trim's defence were solid and they managed to create some oportunites on the counter through hard running from Dylan Smith in particular. On 22 minutes a clever move down the right involving Aidan Scott and Dylan Smith made a shooting chance for Adrian Bisczs who blasted the ball over the OMP keeper into the net. 5 minutes before half time Trim gave possession away in midfield, the ball was played through the advancing Trim defence and the ever dangerous OMP left winger latched onto it. As he moved towards the penalty spot he was taken down leaving the referee with an easy decision. The resultant spot kick was dispatched to the bottom right corner and the teams went in to half time on level terms.
In the second half Trim continued to defend well but were creating few opportunities. After 15 minutes OMP took the lead. Trim failed to clear a ball from the penalty area and the ball fell to an OMP midfielder who rifled the ball home from 12 yards. Trim continued to battle for an equaliser from there to the end but their opponents now had the upper hand and allowed few opportunities. 4 minutes from time poor comunication in the Trim defence allowed an OMP sub to slip in for a soft third goal. Overall Trim played well and couldn't be faulted for effort but OMP were deserving of the 3 points though they were made to work very hard for them. Best for Trim were Aaron O'Connor, Dylan Smith, Kacper Jagodzinski, Oisin Gallagher and in particular the full backs Finn O'Connor and Sam Lynch who both excelled tonight.
Trim Celtic squad: Shaun Mulryan, Finn O Connor, Sam Lynch, Oisin Gallagher, Arnas Mineikis, Aaron O'Connor, Kacper Jagodzinski, Tyreece Tango, Dylan Smith, Jack Fagan, Aidan Scott, Donal McGale, Adrian Biszcs
