CAMPILE UNITED hosted Ross Celtic on Fri­day on a bit­terly cold night at Tom O’Neill Park in round two of the Richie Dwyer Over-35 soc­cer league.

Both sides came into this game hav­ing won their open­ing en­coun­ters, and the large crowd at the game bore tes­ta­ment to the ex­pec­ta­tion.

There was a cau­tious open­ing from both sides with few chances in the first quar­ter.

Dessie Wal­lace found him­self in on goal fol­low­ing a great through ball but the ad­vanc­ing Celtic ‘keeper eas­ily saved.

Shortly af­ter the hard-work­ing Paul O’Leary played a fan­tas­tic through ball to Mikey Grangel who squared it back in the ex­pec­ta­tion of an in­rush­ing for­ward to slot home, but to Campile’s re­lief the de­liv­ery was cut out by the de­fence.

The game now be­gan to open up a lit­tle and, with Em­met Dun­ning and Alan Myler prom­i­nent, Campile started to probe the Ross Celtic rear­guard in the hope of the elu­sive open­ing goal.
