Clonmel Celtic 4 – 2 St Michael’s

Clonmel Celtic Youths battled back from a two goal deficit to claim all three points against St Michael’s with a four goals to two win.

Despite playing quite well in the first half two break away goals from Elliot Thompson had Saints two up before Paul Fitzgerald halved the deficit from the spot and the same player was on target again just before the break to leave the game all square at half time.

Celtic weren’t as impressive in the second half as their play became a bit disjointed though David Garrett got a crucial goal to put them three two up with 15 minutes remaining.

Luke Hyland sealed the points for Celtic with a fourth in the final moments of the game.

St Nicholas 1 – 4 Peake Villa

The home team’s difficult season continued when they were brushed aside by a very strong Peake Villa team on Saturday.

St Nicholas’ were behind by two goals inside five minutes when first Keith Cahill and then Adam Garrett breached the home defence.

Dara Burke pulled one back for the home team five minutes before the break and they did very well in the second period without ever really threatening to draw level.

The Thurles side finally put the points beyond the reach of the Solohead side with two more goals in the last five minutes from Maris Baltis and Dale Loughnane.
