Mill Celtic travelled to Bagenalstown this morning looking to get back into the winning habit after a poor run of late and as the league table suggested, this would be a tight affair. Town started brilliantly but found it hard to get their shots away. James Lillis and Trevor Nolan both had shots saved from the Mill keeper. Mill did have a few half chances early in the half but nothing to trouble the town keeper. The games sole goal came 5 minutes before half time after what was arguably the best move of the match, Daniel Mackey and Killian Harney Lawler combined to set Scott Keogh down the right wing whose low cross was expertly turned home by Padraig Carmody to put Mill 1 up at the break.

The second half saw both teams struggle to get control in what was a very stop start game. Town’s task became even harder when they were reduced to ten men with half an hour to play. Town had glorious chances late in the second half to equalize as Robbie Kane and Marty Curran saw efforts sail wide. Ultimately this was a game of few chances with Carmody’s goal proving to be the winner.

Best for Mill on the day were Gary Lambe, Conor O Sullivan, and Scott Keogh while best for town were James Hickey, Trevor Nolan and Thomas Kinsella.

Another long ball from Nathan Holden found the ever running Robbie Kane to make it 2-0 which it stayed this way until half time. Castle Rangers started the second half better but found it hard to break down the Town defence.

Town did score a 3rd late on after a great run from Robbie Kane playing a one two with Dion Wall and Kane finding the net. Best for town were David Miley, James Hickey, Dion Wall and Robbie Kane.

A largely young and inexperienced Bagenalstown outfit took on an Ardattin team that has had a very strong start to the season.
