HAMILL BAGS LATE 'BREDA WINNER
A late winner saw Knockbreda defeat Queen's University by the odd goal in five at The Dub.
'Breda moved in front as early as the third minute courtesy of an Ethan Devine spot-kick although Queen's did level on ten minutes when Adam Robinson tapped home from a free-kick.
The visitors regained the advantage just after the half-hour when Lee Rea found the net at the third time of asking but, again, back came the Students when Marc McKenna equalised barely a couple of minutes later from the spot.
Queen's were reduced to ten men just before the break when Stephen McGuinness was dismissed for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity. From the resulting set piece Devine came close only to rattle an upright.
Indeed, the home side did well to keep 'Breda at bay for almost the remainder of the game before, five minutes from time, Karl Hamill scored the winner with a deflected finish past Conan Doherty.
