Super Cockhill are through to the third round of the FAI Cup


Donal O'Brien's Cockhill Celtic notched up yet another memorable win as they beat Leinster Senior League side St. Mochta's 3-0 in their Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup second round clash at the Charlie O'Donnell Sportsgrounds.

There was little between the sides in a first half of few chances. Glen Crowe had the best chance for the visitors but Gavin Cullen tipped his effort onto the woodwork.

Cockhill went ahead on 49 minutes through a Gerry Gill penalty after Aidan O'Donnell was brought down in the box by the St. Mochta's goalkeeper.

Cockhill made it 2-0 on 71 minutes with Mattie Henry tapping home from close range.

St. Mochta's pressed hard late on but Cockhill put the icing on the cake with a third goal from the penalty spot in stoppage time which was converted by Gill again, following an incident that saw the St. Mochta's goalkeeper Warren Fee picking up a second yellow card.
