Knockbreda started the better with much of the opening 10 minutes camped in the visitors half without any real chances created.

The Roesiders then came more into the game with both teams guilty of giving the ball away too easily in the scoreless first half.

'Breda again started the second half well with early chances for full-back Karl Hamill and and Ryan Harvey hitting the crossbar from three yards out.

It was the visitors who took the lead on 72 minutes when a back pass to 'keeper David Ferguson saw his clearance fall to Hugh Carlin 25 yards from goal and his shot was deflected into the net.

Knockbreda responded well to that setback and two minutes later were level when a long throw into the visitors box was flicked on with young Lewis Irwin hitting a side foot shot into the opposite corner.

Then, with four minutes to go, 'Breda pushed Hamill up top and their continued pressure paid off when the ball dropped to him about 12 yards out and his shot on the half volley flew into the top of the net to claim the points.
