Neil King (85)


Kevin Lynch (78)



Dollingstown and Sport & Leisure Swifts ended honours even after this Championship Two clash at Planters Park.

Despite enjoying the majority of possession in the first half and with the wind advantage Leisure were largely restricted to efforts from distance without really troubling 'keeper Kris Fletcher.

After the break, Ritchie Thompson's pace proved to be a constant threat for Dollingstown with the Northern Ireland Regions' Cup striker coming close on a number of occasions.

Dollingstown had to play the final quarter-of-an-hour with ten men after Colin Cunningham was forced to leave the pitch through injury and with manager Gary Duke having already fielded his three substitutes.

Despite this Aaron Moffett almost headed them in front only to be thwarted by a goalline clearance.

However, on 78 minutes, Leisure went in front after Kevin Lynch finished off a break with an angled shot at the back post.

But, with five minutes remaining, Neil King grabbed the equaliser from an Andy Hamilton free-kick to earn Dollingstown a share of the spoils.
