  • Coleraine 5-4 Crusaders

Lyndon Kane was the match winning hero for Coleraine as they defeated Crusaders 5-4 on penalties at the Showgrounds.

Kane, who had missed a penalty against the Crues earlier in the season, kept his nerve seal the win for the Bannsiders.

Both sides failed to find the target in normal time, Coleraine finally getting their noses in front on 104 minutes through Jordan Allen.

But the Crues battled back and it was all to play for again when Jack Smith made it 1-1 on 113 minutes.

Coleraine had a great chance to seal the win from penalty spot without the dreaded shoot-out, but Neil McCafferty failed to put it away.

In the end it was left to Kane to see Oran Kearney's men over the line.

In the shoot-out McCafferty, McLaughlin, McCauley, Allan and Kane all scored while Clarke, Gault, Cushley and Mitchell were on target for the Crues.
