The match today between Celtic and Edinburgh Uni, was over as a competition more or less straight away. Celtic dominated possession for the full 90 minutes and managed to put five past them. The definition of men against boys.
Celtic struggled finding the final product after missing a number of chances in the first 20 or so minutes. This was until a scruffy shot from Ben McPherson went in following an atrocious showing from the keeper.
Things were relatively quiet for the rest of the first half with both teams struggling to make chances. Celtic still dominated possession, however.
Celtic came out flying at the start of the second half. After only a few minutes, Ben Quinn scored a goal that was ruled offside by the linesman.
Only ten minutes later Celtic had a great chance as Ben Quinn squared it to Corey Thompson who smashed it top bins, 2-0 Celtic.
Celtic didn’t let up as no more than five minutes later, Celtic looked like Barcelona of days old with great passing football that resulted in a Joey Dawson tap in as Celtic went up by three.
Just as Edinburgh thought it couldn’t get any worse, Celtic made it four as Joey Dawson had a shot on goal deflected by the keeper, only as far as Ben Quinn who drilled home the rebound to add even more salt to Edinburgh’s wound.
Edinburgh seemingly only decided to come into the game when it was too late as they played a lot more aggressive, high pressure football after the fourth.
It was all for nothing however as in the dying embers of the match Ben Quinn struck again with a lovely strike that the keeper had no chance of saving.
Overall Celtic looked unplayable, with Ben Quinn putting on a great show with two goals and an assist, keeping up his run of good form with four in his last two. Truly a special talent.
