'STUTE STAGE LATE BRANDYWELL COMEBACK
Institute stunned Ards with a dramatic stoppage comeback to claim victory at the Brandywell.
The visitors, going into the game in second spot, moved in front on 29 minutes after Ross Arthurs smashed the ball home following a scramble in the box.
It was a lead they held for almost the remainder of the game until that heart stopping finale despite playing the remaining quarter-of-an-hour with ten men following Christopher Crane's dismissal for an off the ball incident involving 'Stute's Joel Gorman.
'Stute levelled in the 90th minute in somewhat bizarre circumstances. Ards keeper Brian Neeson came out to punch a corner clear but the ball came off Jack Millar and looped back over Neeson into the net.
Then, in the fifth minute of added time, Brendan McLaughlin fired 'Stute's winner into the roof of the net amid unbelievable scenes.
