Celtic pay heavy penalty against Shil­le­lagh United

Bray People - - SPORT -

IT WAS an ac­tion-packed week­end of foot­ball in the top flight, with the four teams in ac­tion mus­ter­ing 13 goals be­tween them.

Seven of those strikes came at Celtic Park as Ark­low Celtic B and Shil­le­lagh United served up a scin­til­lat­ing en­counter. United lead the bot­tom club by three goals to nil but the hosts weren't ready to sub­mit and goals from Ed­win Walker, Mark Wolo­han and Ed­ward McLough­lin saw them draw them­selves level.

How­ever, there was a ven­omous sting in the tail for Celtic as United were awarded a penalty - their third in the match - in the dy­ing min­utes and they con­verted it to steal all three points.

Two days ear­lier in Ber­ry­field Lane, En­niskerry YC and St. An­thony's man­aged a thriller of their own.

The hosts were 3-1 ahead at one stage courtesy of goals from Niall Mel­don, Des Kelly and Gavin Barton but Dar­ren Col­lopy, re­spon­si­ble for the Kil­coole side's first ef­fort, added two more to his ac­count to record a hat-trick and earn his side a point to open up a two point lead at the top of the ta­ble.
