St Patrick’s Boys 2

Two goals in the final ten minutes saw Celtic earn a point and put an end to a run of eight straight losses.

The point crucially puts four between them and Celtic Stars at the bottom and as Stars have just two games left it may be enough for Ballymurphy to secure their top-flight status in their first year in the Premier Division. Pat’s started well and were in front on 17 minutes, Kevin Corcoran providing the cross for Lord Afrifa to head home. The visitors continued to dominate but couldn’t turn possession into goals and Ballymurphy almost levelled matters when a Thomas Doyle effort from long range clipped the post and went wide. Pat’s again went on the offensive but had to be content with a slender lead at half time.

After the restart it was much of the same as the visitors created chances and their second goal arrived on 65 minutes when Lord Afrifa cleverly flicked Conor Clack’s free kick to the net. After that it was all Ballymurphy. They deservedly got a goal back on 80 minutes when Luke Roche put Paul Traynor through, his effort was saved but Ger O’Brien was on hand to tap home the loose ball. With Pats desperately clinging onto their lead they gave away a free kick 30 yards from goal in the last minute, it appeared a little far out but Kevin Foley unleashed a thunderbolt to the top corner for a share of the spoils and a vital point for the hosts.

Best for Celtic were James Kelly, Thomas Doyle and Kevin Foley. St Pat’s best included Chris Gaul, Liam Byrne and Lord Afrifa.
