Mountshannon Celtic 6-1 Turnpike Rovers
Mountshannon registered six goals to ensure they comfortably won this First Division fixture.
The scoreline at the interval read 2-0 to the hosts thanks to a pair of Michael Barrett goals in the opening half. His first came when he bent a low shot into the bottom right corner from just outside the opposition area. He doubled his tally when he got on the end of a low cross from Ethan Boyle to coolly convert past the away goalkeeper.
In the second half, Boyle also got a brace of goals. He made it 3-0 when, after robbing possession from a Turnpike defender, he advanced towards the area and rifled the ball into the net. His second was a cool finish low to the goalkeeper’s left after he exchanged clever passes with John Scanlan. The away side managed to reduce their deficit when a low corner was turned into the net with a clever flick at the front post. John Scanlan quickly restored the four goal lead when, after receiving a lay back from Barrett, he clinically found the far corner. The last goal of the game came courtesy of William Kavanagh. After good play from Cathal Moloney in the box, he pounced to powerfully rifle his effort into the roof of Turnpike’s goal.
