Knocknaheeny Celtic  2  Bohemians  4

Bohemians striker John Cronin was the derby day hero as he scored a hat-trick to help his side gain all three points at Kilmore Road in a closely contested AUL 2B game against Knocknaheeny Celtic at Kilmore Road last Saturday.

Bohs led 1-0 at half time but Knocknaheeny came back in the second half and, after 72 minutes, it was 2-2. Bohemians were awarded a penalty in the 82nd minute and went ahead after Cronin scored from the spot. They were to put the finishing touches to their victory when Cronin struck again in the 90th minute by heading home from a well-delivered corner by Trevor Hallissey to put the result beyond doubt.

In the 10th minute, Hallissey floated a dangerous ball from the left and John Cronin rose highest to direct a marvellous header into the top left hand corner of the Knocknaheeny net.

Bohemians survived a lot of pressure before going further ahead in the 63rd minute. Then Robert Walsh delivered a perfect cross from a throw ball and Trevor Hallissey crashed in an unstoppable shot from 15 yards that gave the Knocknaheeny goalkeeper no chance whatsoever.

Both David and John Cronin had chances to extend the Bohs lead but each shot just over. Knocknaheeny kept battling though and reduced the gap in the 69th minute. Then, an indirect free kick fell for Twomey and he managed to touch the ball over the line to bring his side right back into the game.

Knocknaheeny kept up the pressure and in the 73rd minute, they got their equaliser. Pat Sheehan floated the ball into the box from the left and it reached Twomey who duly obliged by directing it beyond the reach of O'Callaghan.

Knocknaheeny were dealt a big blow in the 82nd minute when Bohemians were awarded a penalty. John Cronin stepped up and struck his shot low and hard to the right of the Knocknaheeny goalkeeper to put his side ahead again.

And John put the icing on the Bohs cake in the dying seconds when he got on the end of a corner kick from the right to glance a neat header into the back of the Knocknaheeny net to put the result beyond doubt.
