'BREDA STROLL TO NEW YEARS' EVE VICTORY

After a quiet start by both teams 'Breda took the lead on 14 minutes when a shot from outside the box by Stephen Cockcroft fell to David Johnston ten yards out and he shot low into the net.

The visitors responded on 20 minutes when a high cross from the right by Ciaran Ryan went straight in.

Knockbreda continued to press and with good crosses into the box by David McMaster and Michael Halliday leading the line well were threatening and on 33 minutes regained the lead when McMaster's cross was controlled by Cooling who picked out Halliday who finished with a fine diving header high into the net.

Garth Scates' side extended their lead on 52 minutes when Jake McNeill found Johnston in the box and he drove in his second of the game.

And the sealed the win on 68 minutes when, after fine work by Halliday, a defender handled in the box with Mark Cooling calmly scoring from the spot.

The visitors scored a consolation on 75 minutes with a well taken goal by Sean Devlin.
