Streamstown 'A' 3 - Rearcross 'A' 1
Rearcross ‘A’ travelled to Fanure to face Streamstown Celtic ‘A’ and lost out 3 – 1 as they try to halt their slide down the first division table. Streamstown shaded the early exchanges in the contest and were a goal to the good after 20 minutes when Paul Doyle converted a Craig Byrne cross. Rearcross capitalised on a defensive mix up to level after Robert Harrington headed over home ‘keeper Jason Ryan who had only made a great save moments beforehand. Rearcross almost took the lead in the second half from a free kick, but the home side were thankful for Ryan who produced another top class save to preserve parity. This proved to be a wakeup call for Celtic who took the lead through the inspired Paul Doyle as he rounded a number of defenders before curling home a fine effort. Doyle soon had his hat trick as he tapped home from close range to help his side take full advantage of another of their games in hand over second placed Nenagh AFC ‘B’.s.
