Cookstown Celtic 4

Union Lusa 0

Cookstown Celtic played host to Union Lusa at the Fairhill and came away with a 4-0 victory.

Maguire and Doherty both going close with half chances and Celtic almost took the lead when Aidan Hanna found space in the box and his shot was well saved by the Lusa keeper.

Celtic again went close when Muldoon set up Maguire and his shot was again superbly saved by the keeper. Celtic began to lose their shape and allowed Lusa to come back in to the game. McGahan did well to snuff out a Lusa attack when they counter attacked quickly to keep the scores level at half time.

Cookstown came out of the traps quickly in the second half and opened the scoring when Harley, Muldoon and Maguire all combined to set up Hanna who made no mistake from 12 yards.

Celtic looked much more comfortable and doubled their advantage when Doherty knocked the ball over the defenders head and half volleyed the ball past the keeper from the edge of the box.

The home team started to turn the screw and got their third when a delightful ball from McOscar released Maguire and he blasted it past the Lusa keeper giving him no chance. The scoring was completed when McOscar found Muldoon and he danced round three defenders before slotting home with his left foot.
