Reilly's fatal blow to Celtic
CARBURY SOCCER CLUB..............4 ALLENWOOD CELTIC...................2
CARBURY Soccer Club earned themselves a chance to mix it with the big boys when they overcame Allenwood Celtic with an impressive last 30 minutes to clinch a place in the draw for the last 32.
The home side hit the front after just four minutes when Ian Dunne fired home from the edge of the area after good work by Anthony Doyle and Mark Myles.
A stunning free from Allenwood’s Jason Judge, which left home ’keeper Jimmy Dunne rooted to the spot levelled matters after 15 minutes. Celtic should have led at the break but Joe Carroll failed to finish when one-on-one with ’keeper Jimmy Dunne on two occasions.
An Ian Dunne spot-kick restored the home side’s lead in the 48th minute but Celtic lev-elled for the second time when Ken Hanlon threaded a superb through-ball into the path of Eric Judge and he rounded Dunne before rolling the ball to an empty net. It was end to end stuff now and one felt that the next goal would win the tie and so it happened. Carbury put themselves in the driving seat when Barry Sullivan’s right-wing cross was powerfully headed past Allenwood ’keeper Gary Percival.
Allenwood battled gamely to get back into the game with midfielders Eric Judge and man-of-the-match Ken Hanlon toiling bravely in midfield. However, they were caught on the break for the clinching goal with just five minutes when James Reilly broke through the sparce Allenwood defence before firing past Percival from 12 yards.
