Alex Pomeroy bagged a hat-trick for the Roesiders


An Alex Pomeroy hat-trick breathed life into Limavady United's survival hopes with victory over Knockbreda at Breda Park.

Scoreless at the break, Pomeroy bagged his three goals in a blistering ten minute spell with the first arriving on the hour, forcing the ball over the line at the second attempt after Dean Smyth initially saved from Ryan Logue's cross.

Number two arrived four minutes later when he was allowed ample time and space to deliver an unstoppable volley past the diving Smyth.

And Pomeroy's goal blitz continued on 70 minutes when he used his pace to get in behind the home defence to stroke the ball into the net from outside the box.

David Fearon pulled one back for 'Breda with seven minutes remaining, making the most of a poor clearance to beat Paul Wells.
