Fair­wood Celtic edge it

Bray People - - SPORT -

DIVI­SION 3 lead­ers Fair­wood Celtic were made to work ex­tremely hard to keep their dream of de­fend­ing the Char­lie Byrne Cup alive on Sun­day.

They hosted pro­mo­tion ri­vals Saints FC at Dunne's Field with a place in the last four at stake. The only pre­vi­ous meet­ing be­tween the pair saw the duo play out a 1-1 draw and that re­sult looked to be on the cards again when the vis­i­tors took the lead, only for PJ O'Keefe to equalise for the hosts.

The Wex­ford side then re­took the lead but were pow­er­less to pre­vent O'Keefe from strik­ing again to leave the sides all square and then Tony Darcy - on tar­get in last year's fi­nal - popped up with a late win­ner to break Saints' hearts.
