Coca Cola Cup final: Casement Celtic 1 Douglas Hall 3 (aet).

A superbly taken hat-trick by Ian Doyle , which included two goals in the second half of extra time, earned Douglas Hall the Coca Cola Cuop on a 301 decision over Casement Celtic.

Underdogs Casement played well in the first half  and went ahead four minutes before the break when Martin Cronin sent Sidney Kennedy in to to score past keeper David Boyle.

The Hall got on top after the break, partly due to the input of sub Donagh Keeshan who replaced injured skipper David Grainger in the 29th minute. They equalised midway through the second half when John Kenneally's shot broke to Doyle who cooly beat keeper Damien Donnellan from close range.

In the 102nd minute, Doyle pounced on a loose ball following an Alan Carroll cross and made 2-1. He completed his hat trick in injury time following good work by Kenneally and Carroll.

The game referee was Brian O'Regan.

Douglas Hall: D. Boyle, J. Carroll, I. Murnahan, J. Mehigan, S. O'Connell, J. Kenneally, J. Glacken, K. Desmond, I. Doyle, D. Grainger (c), and A Carroll. Subs used: D. Keeshan and M. O'Connell.
