Clonmel Celtic recovered from last week’s humiliation in Bansha to record a fine four goals to two win against a high flying Borris side, to consolidate their position at the top of Division Two of the Youths League.
Celtic got the perfect start when Keith Hackett converted from the spot after he had been fouled with just two minutes on the clock. The home side continued to play some good football throughout the early stages but missed a number of opportunities to add a second goal.
Borris always looked dangerous when they attacked and they levelled the game on the half hour when Karl Collins scored from a free kick and the first half finished honours even.
Celtic were again faster out of the blocks in the second half and Keith Hackett restored their lead on 47 minutes. It was a much improved performance from the home side still smarting from last week’s poor display but Borris were always in the game and a Cameron Grace free kick made it two apiece on with a quarter of an hour left.
However with ten minutes remaining Lucas Scharer nudged Celtic ahead and the same player capped a good Celtic performance by getting the insurance goal in the final minute, to secure all three points for the home team.
