PORTS ON TOP AFTER SECOND HALF GOAL FLURRY

After a scoreless first-half the Ports went ahead on the hour through 15-year-old Alberto Balde with a glancing header from Niall Henderson's right-wing cross.

'Breda levelled within sixty seconds, however, through Lewis Irwin after he did well to control the ball before beating Chris McGaughey with a long range finish into the top corner.

Portadown regained the advantage just three minutes after that when Henderson converted from the spot following a goalmouth scramble that saw Adam Salley fouled.
