BREDA RALLY TO DEFEAT VILLAGERS

Knockbreda stormed back from two goals down to defeat Loughgall at Breda Park.

Brendan Bennett might have handed 'Breda the lead only to hit the post from close range but it was Andrew Hoey who opened the scoring in favour of the visitors not long after when, following a break down the left, he finished with a low shot into the net.

Hoey then doubled the Villagers' advantage from the spot on 56 minutes after a foul in the box.

Knockbreda then introduced two substitutes, Jordan Baker and David Fearon, who changed the course of the game.

After good work on their right, Fearon's low cross was tapped into the net by Baker on 67 minutes and the same duo combined five minutes later when Fearon's headed flick on was guided into the net by Baker.

The comeback was completed with just under a quarter-of-an-hour remaining when the roles reversed when Fearon controlled a flick on from Baker and shot low into the net from ten yards for the winning goal.
