Kilmacrennan Celtic upset the odds by overturning Premier Division title chasers Cappry Rovers to reach the Brian McCormick Cup final.
Kilmacrennan Celtic 2 Cappry Rovers 0
Both teams were affected by missing players but that didn’t put a dampener on the quality of football played. Both teams created chances in the first half.
It was the home side that made the most of theirs, with great link up play from Michael McLaughlin and Timmy Burke to put James Doherty through on goal, and he made no mistake finding the back of the net, despite Cappry’s keeper getting a hand on the ball.
Kilmacrennan got their second when Ryan Shields came out on top after a goal line scuffle and put the hosts two up at the break. Cappry came out fighting in the second half but the Kilmacrennan defence held strong and the game ended 2-0.
Best for Kilmacrennan – John Rab Sandilands, Ryan Shields. Best for Cappry – team effort.
Referee – Liam McLaughlin
