Cockhill Celtic 3 Fanad United 0

Cockhill are three points clear of Letterkenny Rovers at the top of the Ulster Senior League.

On Sunday they were too strong for an under-strength Fanad.

It was the away team who had the first effort on target when a Dean McCarry free kick was easily dealt with by Stephen Conroy.

It took 18 minutes for Cockhill to test the Fanad keeper Eoghan Jordan as he tipped over a Lee McColgan shot.

It was all Cockhill at this point with Jason Breslin hitting the side netting when well placed and Brendan McLaughlin hitting the post with a low strike after cutting inside a defender.

They eventually took the lead on 40 minutes with a crisp finish from Laurence Toland after good interplay between Marty Doherty, James Bradley and Mark Moran.

Jordan was called on again soon after when a Gerry Gill free kick flicked off a defender but Jordan produced a brilliant low save.

The second half continued in a similar vein with Cockhill scoring two early goals. Intricate build-up on 58 minutes lead to a Gerard McLaughlin close range finish before Breslin headed home a Gill corner on five minutes later.
