Celtic prove too strong for Kilrea United at Cahore Road grounds

Ruairi Keenan in action for Draperstown Celtic against Kilrea United

Draperstown Celtic 3 Kilrea United. 0

Kilrea were the visitors to Cahore for the second time in two games, this time though it was in the league.

Despite plenty of early huffing and puffing from both sides, the best chance in the opening fifteen minutes was when Keenan connected to a Bradley cross from wide but his header glanced off the crossbar.

Four minutes later, Bradley broke the deadlock when his effort from the edge of the box bounced off the post and on to the keepers back and into the back of the net. A horrible goal to concede but no complaints from home side.

A good save from Cassidy just before half time allowed the home side to keep the advantage. Early in the second half, Cassidy again pulled off a good save, this time from a Kilrea free, and with the very next attack, Bradley ran half the pitch and doubled his and the home sides tally. Not long after, Gareth Haskins had a decent effort from inside the box and it ricocheted out towards the edge of the box where Heron was waiting to rifle it and put the tie to bed.

Kilrea did have a decent patch where they hit the post but the lads ran out with a clean sheet and a solid three points. Well done lads.
