Warrenpoint Town came from two goals down to secure the point they needed to clinch the NIFL Championship title with victory over Institute at Milltown.

Niall Grace fired 'Stute in front on 23 minutes after heading a Stephen Curry cross past Johnny Parr.

And it was 2-0 a couple of minutes later when Curry himself tucked away the rebound after Kyle Curran's initial effort was saved.

'Point pulled one back through Conor McMenamin on 34 minutes after he combined with Stephen Murray to beat a couple of defenders and then 'keeper Martin Gallagher.

Then, five minutes from the break, Murray got Matthew Tipton's side back on level terms with a lob over Gallagher.

Murray then grabbed the goal that sealed the title not long after the hour mark when he did well to control a John McGuigan pass to finish with aplomb.
