Match Report

Trim Celtic advanced to the 1/4 Final of the Challenge Cup with a 3-2 win over OMP Utd after extra time. Despite Celtic completely hitting the post twice in the first half the teams were level at half time.
OMP took the lead early in the second half when a cross by substitute Donal Callan deceived everybody and ended up in the back of the net. Trim responded by piling on the pressure and forced an equaliser when OMP centre half Shaun Doyle miss hit his goal line clearance from Brian Faulkner's shot and it ended up in the net. Celtic pressed further and took the lead when Eoin O’Connor superbly headed home from a corner. With 3 minutes to go OMP equalised with a long ball over the top which was finished well to send the game into extra-time.
With OMP reduced to 10 men early in extra time Celtic pressed home their numerical advantage with Luke Mahon scoring the winner following a fine team move.
