'BREDA DISPLAY FIGHTING SPIRIT TO EARN POINT
Knockbreda twice came from behind to claim a point from Ballyclare Comrades' visit to Breda Park.
It took the visitors just over a minute to move in front when recent arrival Owen McKeown won a free-kick which Ian Fletcher delivered into the area for Jason Johnston to nod home.
'Breda almost levelled straightaway only to hit the crossbar before, just shy of the half-hour mark, skipper Ross McCaughan did equalise with a header past Jack Ferguson.
Ballyclare regained the advantage on the hour. Breaking on the counter attack, substitute Ciaran Dobbin ran with the ball almost the full length of the pitch before finding Liam Hassin with a pass who, in turn, cut it back for Dobbin to slide beyond Lewis Deane.
However, the home side responded positively once again, and subsequently earned a share of the spoils thanks to Nathan O'Neill's, who had only been on the pitch for around sixty seconds, 25-yard finish on 72 minutes.
