Cockhill Celtic 2-1 Derry City Reserves
It wasn’t plain sailing as Derry went ahead within five minutes when Dara Kelly’s long range strike found the top corner.
Cockhill got back on level terms when Garbhan Friel won the ball in midfield.
Corey McBride then played a fantastic pass in between McJannett and Cole to Christy McLaughlin who slotted past the keeper with his left foot.
Cockhill’s winning goal came went James Bradley won possession on the right and played a deep cross to Friel, who squared to Jack Doherty whose well struck shot was handled on the line by Darren Cole who was dismissed.
Friel banished any memories of Sunday’s missed spot kick by sending the keeper the wrong way.
