LSL Major 1 B Saturday
Booth Road Celtic-6
Booth Road completed a sensational treble and won the last LSL title on offer on Wednesday night.
The Tom Carroll and Noel Ryan Cup winners won the final game of the Leinster Senior League 2016/17 calendar and more importantly the league.
The Clondalkin had suffered a little dip in form of late and where forced to the wire after losing to title rivals Ringsend Rovers last time out, but recovered in style to produced a one sided away win and pip Rovers at the post.
Celtic won the title with a massively superior goal difference and tonight celebrate treble success.
There worries the visitors were struggling to get over the line and questions were asked as to how they would react to the pressure tie. Those questions were answered emphatically early on.
Shane Merrigan, who has played up top and wide right this season, opened the scoring despite starting in central midfield. The evergreen Philip Sheppard then doubled the advantage the top scorer raced onto Mikey Collins pass before finishing.
Former Liverpool youth and now nigh on Booth Road legend Collins got in on the act soon after and put the Clondlakin side three clear with an eye catching strike.
Defender Kelly all but wrapped up the win and the title race with a fourth before Leixlip pulled one back.
However, Sheppard finished from the spot to restore the four goal cushion before Merrigan dinked home late on to cap of a fine season in style.
Expect similar scenes to this around Clondalkin Village tonight.
