Bridge United returned to winning ways in LIT on Sunday morning with a good victory over Bridge Celtic. United started very well and should have been in front in the opening stages with opportunities for Pewter, Barrett and McNamara all going close. On 13 minutes the deadlock was broken when Maxwell got on the end of Tommy Barrett searching ball to calmly slot home. United doubled their lead on 21 minutes through a Kieran Quinlan penalty after Pewter had been fouled in the box. Celtic got back in the game on 33 minutes when Nicky O’Connell scored.
United started the second period strongly but had to wait until the 67 minute for their 3rd with Darren Murphy heading home from Quinlan corner. Substitute John Keogh made it 4 on 71 minutes with a very well worked team goal. The outstanding Eoin Guinan carried the ball out of defence before playing a one two with Pewter and then feeding Quinlan who squared to Keogh to finish. Fitzgerald completed the scoring on 84 minutes when he won the ball in his own half and with the Celtic defence all forward for a corner he carried the ball through on goal before calming slotting home.
