Newtown topple Celts

There was controversy at the Temple Sportsfield in Bray as no less than FIVE players were sent off as Newtown United A edged out Wolfe Tone Celtic 5-4 after extra time.

Goals by Adam Devlin, Kieran Conway and former Bray Wanderers/Shamrock Rovers man Robbie Manley and an OG wasn't enough to stop the Magpies bid to claim four major trophies this season.

Ross Odlum notched a treble for United with Neil Martin and Cathal McNicholas also on the mark.

St. Patrick's A complete the last-four line-up.

That's after they overcame Fairwood Celtic 5-3 at Dunne's Field. Johnny Arthur continued his remarkable scoring record this season by netting three more for the Saint's. Niall Devereux and James Murray were also on the mark for the Avoca club.

Stephen Nolan (2) and Paul O'Keeffe claimed the goals for the Division 3 home side.
