Gary Keane grabbed a hat-trick as Tobermore United travelled to Belfast to defeat leaders Donegal Celtic.

Keane opened the scoring after a quarter-of-an-hour before doubling his tally three minutes later after an excellent turn and shot.

Celtic were given a glimmer of hope around the hour mark when substitute Declan Monaghan came off the bench to reduce the arrears with one of his first touches.

However, Keane struck again with nine minutes remaining from the spot to secure the points for Adrian Whiteside's men.
