A fast start from Carryduff, we dominated the first 20 minutes but couldnt get the goals our performance deserved, the forward line of Rory Timoney,Declan Magee and Joseph Tolan were causing the Celtic boys defence all sorts of problems.
The first chance fell to Rory Timoney after great work from Declan down the left who feed Rory and he beat the defender but with the keeper well beaten the ball came back off the post and ran across the line before being hecked clear.
The second chance came soon after, Declan went on a solo run beating two defenders but the third defender came across at the last second to block.
Jamie Wilkinson then struck a super free kick into the bottom corner only for the keeper to get a fingertip to save when he looked to be beaten.
Rory Timoney then gave the Celtic boys defence a torrid time turning them inside out before shooting narrowly wide, it only looked a matter of time before we would score.
Celtic boys then scored against the run of play when the referee gave a free kick on the left they delivered a lovely ball into the box which was meet with a looping header to give Jude Lynam in goals no chance.
1-0 at half time flattered Celtic boys we looked comfortable and they didnt create much, our defence of Eamon Swail, Aidan Martin, Matthew O’Rourke and Odhran Sherry were in control and were dealing with everything they tried to create.
The second half saw Celtic boys lift their game and take control of the midfield although they didnt create many chances they had a lot of posession, but Jude Lynam was called upon to make a fabulous save again from a set piece a decent delivery forced Jude into a flying save to his left.
Celtic extended their lead with a great strike from a tight angle which gave Jude no chance for a 2-0 lead with 18 minutes remaining, but we couldnt get a goal back our best chance fell to Matthew Winchester who was played through by Harry Graham only to slice wide.
This was a game of two halves Celtic boys took their chances and came away with the 3 points.
