Rossin Rovers 1-6 Ardee Celtic
Michael Szostakowski struck a brace and Trevor Farrell scored his first senior goal as Ardee Celtic progressed in the Tully Cup in Slane on Thursday night.
Two goals in rapid time from new signing Daniel Kerr and Aaron Roche gave the Deesiders a 2-0 advantage at the break, which Jamie Ward and Farrell doubled early in the second period.
Szostakowski hit a double to finish, either side of Rossin pulling a stroke back after Conor Lynch had pulled off a fine penalty stop.
