Man of Match

Sam R

Sometimes the final scoreline seems to belong to another game and so it proved when Dunton ran out as winners at the end of this entertaining match.

Celtic started well and after 10 minutes their pressure paid off when a fierce shot from man-of-the-match Sam R opened the scoring and he followed that up with a similar effort after 30 minutes. Unfortunately, Dunton had scored from a slightly fortunate penalty after 17 minutes and after Celtic had missed several chances the visitors equalised when an attempted clearance from the keeper ricochetted into the net. 

Just 7 minutes into the second half and Dunton rode their luck again when a shot was diverted past the Celtic keeper for an own goal. Celtic kept up the pressure but went further behind after a great solo effort from a Dunton forward at the three-quarter stage. The home side soon hit back with a goal from Ed Atkins but the chances continued to go begging and they just couldn't find an equaliser.
