MONAGHAN BAGS HAT-TRICK AS HOOPS STORM TO VICTORY

Donegal Celtic bounced back from a disappointing start to the season to defeat Tobermore United 6-2 at Celtic Park.

It didn't bode well for Stephen Hatfield's side, however, when Stephen Lamont fired the visitors in front after little more than a quarter-of-an-hour had elapsed.

However two headers from Declan Monaghan and Robbie McVarnock saw the Hoops lead at the break.

Monaghan then grabbed another couple early in the second half to secure his hat-trick before Paul Ryan and Darren Stuart saw Celtic establish a commanding lead.

David Healy scored Tobermore's second with an excellent strike six minutes from time but it proved to be scant consolation for the visitors.
