Crettyard United 4 Dolmen Celtic 0 A brace from Lee Salter helped United ease to the points and join New Oak, Hanover and Slaney on seven points at the top of the table, although New Oak have played a game less than the rest. The hosts dominated from the start but it took 30 minutes to break down a stubborn Celtic rear guard, Mikey Byrne’s persistence paying off as he slotted home at the second attempt after Jamie Hennessy saved his initial effort. Seven minutes later and the lead was doubled, Anto Fitzpatrick teasing the Dolmen defence before teeing up Salter who fired low into the corner to give United a commanding half time lead. With Dolmen offering little going forward it was Crettyard and Salter that finished the game as a contest midway through the half, Fitzpatrick again tormenting the Celtic back line providing another assist for United’s ace marksman. With five minutes left on the clock
