BOTH these sides were looking for their first points of the season when they met at DkIT last Monday night and it was the visitors, Rampart Celtic, who broke their duck with a 5-2 win.
Jason Myles got the home side off to a perfect start after 12 minutes with a great individual strike that gave David Lynch no chance.
The Rampart goalkeeper then took off a superb save to deny the All Stars from doubling their lead.
On 20 minutes the scores were level when Aidan McGuinness curled an excellent shot past Eamonn Roe before James McKey restored Doolargy’s lead with a thumping header approaching the break.
McGuinness struck again for Rampart just after the resumption of play and he completed his hat-trick soon after with a deft lob over the keeper to put Celtic 3-2 ahead.
An injury to Damian Bond, midway through the half, was a game changer, his shackling of Jason Mulligan playing a big part in keeping the All Stars very much in the game.
With the influential Mulligan now dictating the game, Caolan Carroll made the match safe for Rampart, notching their 4th goal with 10 minutes to go.
Mulligan crowned Ciaran Pickering’s side’s first win with a stunning strike close to the full-time whistle, his third goal in as many matches.
Savage on target as rampant Doms hit six
DUNDALK Inter put up brave resistance to St Dominic’s in the first-half of this game at the Friary last Monday night with a determined rearguard performance.
The sides swapped goals in the first 45 minutes but the second-half saw the Saints overwhelm Inter and run out 6-1 winners to chalk up their second win from the opening three games.
Mark Savage was the star of the show for the Friary side, hitting a hat-trick for the second game in a row. Brian McCluskey, Ronan Ballantine and David Maloney were the other Doms players on target.
Krzysztof Arent got Inter’s first-half score, he has scored in both games played by the newcomers.
