Gerry Gill converted two second-half penalties as Ulster Senior League champions Cockhill Celtic swept past St Mochta's.

The former Finn Harps and Derry City winger kept his cool twice from the spot.

On 49 minutes, Henry was fouled by keeper Warren Fee and Gill slotted home.

Matthew Henry made it 2-0 and Gill added the third late on, tucking his penalty past defender Gavin Smith, who had donned the gloves when Fee was sent off.
