Killymoon Rangers 4 Chimney Corner 2

Killymoon came from two goals down to deservedly take all three vital points at a wet and windy Mid-Ulster Sports Arena on Saturday afternoon.

It was the visitors to took the lead against the run of play after a mix up at the back of the home defence and a desperate goal mouth scramble the ball somehow found its way past Stewart.

Before that the home side started brightly with Young trying his luck from range, but his efforts sailed wide.

The visitors doubled their lead with just twenty minutes played when the forward took the ball on the left and cut inside unleashing a shot which gave the home keeper no chance.

Killymoon to their credit began to get more involved and grabbed a goal of their own.

A ball from the right eventually found its way to Donaghy who found the far corner of the net with a lovely finish.

Moments later Donaghy turned provider as his cross from the left found Young at the far post who connected with a fine looping header to give the visiting keeper no chance.

As the half winded to an end a very late challenge from a visiting player on Jason Ferry, received a yellow when many of the home support felt that it should have been red.

It was all one away traffic in the second half as Killymoon lifted their game and just after the hour mark the comeback was complete as Young scored his second of the game and the home side’s third.

He received the ball wide on the right and cut inside beating a couple of defenders and slotted the ball home in the far corner.

Skipper Donaghy completed the scoring with five minutes remaining. Great link up play between Neill and Brownlee eventually found the later in the box and he picked out Donaghy at the far corner with a drilled cross. Chimney Corner offered very little in the second half, relying heavily on the strong wind with their long balls but special praise for the solid performances of Hunter, Neill and Martin who were magnificent throughout.

Killymoon Rangers: Stewart, Scott, Martin, McElhatton, J. Ferry, Neill, Young, Hunter, Donaghy (c), Brownlee, Dardis. Subs: McGaw, R Ferry, Coyle.
