Oscar Traynor Trophy Group A
Defence Forces – 1
AUL – 4
A stunning first-half hat-trick from Jake Donnelly helped the AUL coast to a comfortable 4-1 victory against Defence Forces in Group A of the Oscar Traynor Trophy at the Phoenix Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Aungier Celtic hit-man opened his account on fifteen minutes before adding his and his sides’ second of the game on 35 minutes.
Donnelly then secured his hat-trick just before half-time to give the visitors a comfortable 3-0 advantage at the break.
Rickie Fox pulled one back from the penalty spot for the hosts midway through the second stanza, however, Hardwicke youngster Peter Hopkins struck late in the game to restore their three goal advantage and settle the game at a 4-1 score-line.
