  • Warrenpoint 2-3 Glentoran

Glentoran clinched victory in a hard-fought game at Warrenpoint.

Glentoran took the lead just four minutes in.

Some slack home defending, allowed Dan Kelly in to net his first goal for the east Belfast club.

Just before the break, Gary Haveron's side doubled their advantage.

Tiernan McNicholl netted, after Elliott Morris made strong saves to deny Alan Davidson and Stephen Murray.

It was a sickening moment for Warrenpoint who had also struck the Glens woodwork through Jordan Dane.

The home side were then awarded a penalty after the Glentoran defence had been guilty of sitting too deep, inviting pressure.

However they couldn't take advantage, Murray's spot kick was saved by Glens keeper Elliott Morris.

But Glentoran didn't heed the warning signs and soon Warrenpoint were level.

Daniel Murray pulled one back, and just three minutes later it was 2-2, when Conall McGrandles, who had been provider for Murray's goal made it 2-2.

The game had another twist though, as Glentoran went back in front - Daniel Kelly rising above the defence to score with his head.
