LATE DOUBLE WINS THE DAY FOR CRUES

Two goals in as many minutes late in the second half helped Crusaders come from behind to defeat Portadown at Shamrock Park.
 
There wasn't much between the sides in a scoreless opening 45 minutes.
 
Ben Kennedy sent a 25-yard free-kick over for the Crues with a similar fate meeting a Ben Guy effort at the other end soon after.
 
Lee Bonis then fired just wide from 20 yards while Philip Lowry was denied by a good Jacob Carney stop after the ball took a deflection.
 
Portadown moved in front just after the hour when Adam Salley turned and shot from inside the box with the ball going past Sean O'Neill via a deflection off Declan Caddell.
 
But the Crues hit back with two quick fire goals later in proceedings.
 
Aidan Wilson levelled on 79 minutes with a back post header from a Paul Heatley corner. Then, sixty seconds later, substitute Jordan Owens sent a rifled finish into the bottom corner.
 
And the visitors could have bagged a third goal on 87 minutes after Greg Hall brought down Adam Lecky in the box but, from the penalty that followed, Jamie McGonigle saw his effort saved by Carney with a low dive to his right.
