SEAHAWKS BEAT EAGLES ON OPENING DAY

Stefan McKenna fired City in front as early as the opening minute when he cut in from the left to find the top corner with a stunning strike.

The Seahawks levelled on seven minutes through Johnny Stewart after he got on the end of a quick ball forward, before he fired them in front by finding the bottom corner after controlling a cross from the left.

Thai Blevins equalised for Armagh just before the hour with a wonderfully struck 25-yard free-kick which gave 'keeper Lukasz Bednarz no chance.

However, David McClements secured the points for the visitors on 71 minutes from 20 yards following an attack down the right.
