PORTS DENIED BY SECOND HALF OWN GOAL

Kyle Neill opened the scoring for Portadown after seven minutes when his corner from the right bypassed everyone - including 'keeper Martin Gallagher - before ending up in the back of the net.

'Stute levelled on 27 minutes through Dean Curry after he was found unmarked by Aaron Harkin with a delivery from the right.

Portadown regained the advantage seven minutes later with a low Chris Lavery finish into the bottom left corner.

However, Institute earned a share of the spoils midway through the second half courtesy of an unfortunate Kyle McVey own goal after a Caoimhin McCallion left-foot drive took a massive deflection off the former Coleraine, Linfield and Ballymena United man.
