Banbridge Town raced into the lead as early as the first minute when Stephen Teggart when he got on the end of a throw-in before darting through the defence and beating 'keeper Conor Larkin into the corner.

It took the visitors until the stroke of half-time to equalise when Aaron Duke rose highest to outjump the home defence to nod home a corner kick.

That was how it stayed until the closing stages when Banbridge forged ahead to secure the points.

First, on 80 minutes, Fra McGuinness restored their lead with a near post finish from Ryan Gourley's right-sided cross before, four minutes after that, Conor Downey grabbed a third after Gourley again supplied the crucial delivery.
