Cookstown Celtic in action against with Hill Street.

Hill Street’s match survived the snow and rain on Saturday as they travelled to cookstown Celtic to take on the league new boys.

In the end it was a comprehensive three points for the Lurgan side.

In what proved to be horrid conditions for football Hill Street knuckled down and started the brighter but missed several early chances.

On what was a very heavy and bumpy pitch any kind of football proved hard.

However, Street took the lead when Steven Lawson provided a cool finish.

Matthew Reynolds then scored from outside the box with a curling shot into the top left corner.

Celtic settled into the game more and put some pressure on Street.

The home team did manage to score after slack play in defence, but Ian Penny restored the two advantage after rounding the keeper.

The second half was the same as the first with both teams struggling with the pitch. Penny then netted again after good play down the right from James wright.

The game was ended as a contest when Penny scored his hat-trick. This was also Penny’s sixth hat-trick of the season.
