Jamie McGonigle struck either side of the break as Coleraine continued their remarkable run with victory over Glenavon at Mourneview Park.

Joel Cooper opened the scoring for Glenavon in what was an Irish Cup semi-final dress rehearsal after ten minutes with a back post finish after a deflected James Gray effort fell into his path.

McGonigle levelled for the Bannsiders after 26 minutes with a touch into the bottom corner from Adam Mullan's cross.

And the 21-year-old struck again early in the second half after connecting with an Eoin Bradley flick.
