Celtic came out against a very strong West United team a bit flat, maybe a bit too confident after last week and slow to start partly due to late arrivers to the game not having a chance to warm up. Some back and forth but majority of opportunities were in favor of the Sean Morrissey, Bill Seifert West United attack. The two of them were dominating the midfield, making it very dangerous for us to handle all game. The field at Sahlens was in good shape overall...one corner was a bit soggy to say the least.

West United opened the scoring by making a great run down the right to the soggy corner and sending a bullet across the crease that found an extremely wide open West attacked back side for a clinical finish. 1-0 at half.

The game was a very physical games throughout and it spilled over with several yellows including a second yellow given to a Celtic player after he was slammed out of bounce causing a short melee in the West United bench area that included a couple of their fans that were on their bench to get involved.

After order was restored, Celtic finally found our game and to complete our come from behind win 2-1. Mariusz had a great individual effort in the left corner of the attacking half and sent a perfect cross to another new member of the squad Jason Owens for a clinical header to tie. With about maybe 15 to go, Rogerio finished a beautifully free kick over the wall and into the upper 90 from about 18 out for the win. West had their chances as they rang the post late in the came and never stopped attacking with speed.

A very tough, physical win against an extremely talented team. A lot of cards but the Referee crew did a good job keeping the game in motion. Next up is the Oranje...
