Quay Celtic 2-3 Trim Celtic
Quay Celtic remain in relegation danger despite Cody Magill's screamer in Friday night's defeat to Trim Celtic at Clancy Park.
The midfielder lobbed a shot from inside his own-half straight from the kick-off which went in off the underside of the Trim 'keeper's 'bar as the Point Road men took the lead against the title-chasers.
However, two goals in quick succession before the end of the first quarter saw Trim nudge in front at the break.
Quay made a positive start to the second half and dominated possession without creating too many clear-cut chances. This prior to Trim landing a decisive blow in the form of a third goal. It was the second time they scored from a corner in the game.
Credit Martin Smith's side, they battled to the end and got some reward when the returning Colin Finan cut in from the left and shot right-footed to the bottom corner.
But, despite having thrown their all in attack for the final minutes, they were unable to level.
