'BREDA HIT FIVE TO GO TOP OF THE PILE

Knockbreda took the lead on 36 minutes when Ciaran Murray played a great ball to Ryan Newberry who shot low into the net from 12 yards.

Another great move on 41 minutes saw 'Breda break from a visitors corner with a run from Newberry who passed to Murray whose cross was met first time in the box by Lewis Irwin, rattling the crossbar and bouncing down to be cleared.

Two minutes into the second half 'Breda thought they had extended their lead when a driven shot by Murray was spilled by the 'keeper with Harvey heading the rebound into the net. The goal was however ruled out for offside.

The visitors then came more into the game and it was no surprise when they equalised through Warner Mullen on 52 minutes.

Knockbreda however responded well and regained the lead on 56 minutes when the ball dropped to Mark Cooling just inside the box and he sent a shot high into the net.

On 72 minutes Harvey was played in and his shot was blocked but Murray, following up, finished well from outside the box. 

'Breda completed their scoring on 86 minutes with a great finish by substitute Conall Young. The youngster, on loan from Glenavon received a great cross field pass from Murray and with brilliant chest control passed the defender before passing the ball into the net.

The visitors scored a second goal in added time when a shot by Conor McAnallen was deflected and looped high into the net.
