Millstreet Celtic beat Leeview 5-4 at home this morning. We took an early lead through Tadhg Collins after he outmuscled a defender and finished well. We kept the pressure on and were awarded a penalty in the 20th min when Barry Lawlor was tripped in the box after a good run. Tim Kiely slotted home the penalty to make it 2-0. 10 mins later it was 3-0. Eamon O Keeffe played a ball over the top for Collins to run on to and he made no mistake for his 2nd of the day. Collins grabbed his hat trick 5 mins before half time with a neat finish after being sent through by Finbarr Corcoran. 4-0 up at the start of the 2nd half but we didn’t keep up the pressure as we had wanted to. Leeview got one back after 55 mins and made it 4-2 after 65 following some poor defending. We scored again 5 mins later though when Chris Cleary’s overhead kick found the net from Kiely’s through ball. Still we weere sloppy all over the field and conceded again in the 80th and 89th mins to set up a nervy 5 mins of injury time. We held on for the 3 points though despite a poor 2nd half. Best for us on the day were Tadhg Collins, Finbarr Corcoran and Barry Lawlor.

Millstreet Celtic beat Leeview 4-0 this morning to move within a point of the top at Pfizer Park this morning. Straight from the kickoff we put them under pressure through Chris Cleary and he set up Michael Murphy who forced a good save from the keeper. We kept the pressure on and took the lead after 10 mins. Barry Lawlor picked the ball up in midfield and played a lovely ball through for John Lehane who slotted the ball neatly beyond the keeper. 15 mins later we were 2-0 up. Good work from Murphy on the end line saw him get free and he played the ball in to Donal O Riordan to blast home from close range. Leeview had a couple of half chances but we were well worth our half time lead. In the 2nd half they tried to push on a bit more but we were looking very dangerous on the break and got the 3rd after 60 mins. Lawlor got free in the left of the box and squared it for Cleary to fire home. We kept the tempo up and had a couple of more good chances through John O Mahony and Murphy before we got the 4th with 10 mins to go. Good interplay down the left by Cleary and Jer Keating saw Cleary get into space in the box. He cut the ball back for Keating who used all of his experience to let the ball run for Lawlor to fire home from 18 yards. Best for us on the day were Barry Lawlor, Michael Murphy and Chris Cleary.
