'STUTE STAGE LATE COMEBACK
Two goals late in the second half saw Institute come from behind to defeat Ballyclare Comrades at Dixon Park.
The home side needed just ten minutes to open the scoring when an Ian Fletcher cross deep into the box was only partially cleared allowing Liam Hassin to get to the ball and nod past John Connolly.
Ballyclare could have doubled their advantage before the break when new signing Caiolan Brennan tested Connolly with an effort from just outside the box, before teeing Michael Smith up moments later to fire just over.
Brennan was involved again just after the hour when he nodded the ball on for fellow transfer window arrival Ryan Arthur while Arthur himself turned provider soon after with a free-kick to the back post but Hassin could only head slightly off target.
However, Institute levelled on 77 minutes when Brendan McLaughlin, who had come close a few minutes earlier, headed past Jack Ferguson.
Then, right at the death, Mark McFadden knocked home what proved to be Institute's winner with a fantastic individual finish with the last kick of the game.
