'POINT FIGHT BACK TO CLAIM MILLTOWN WIN

Warrenpoint Town came from behind to defeat Ards at Milltown.

Ards held the lead at the break thanks to Eamon Scannell's 32nd minute header.

But two goals in quick succession early in the second half tipped the balance in Warrenpoint's favour.

Steven Ball levelled on 51 minutes with a driven finish into the far corner from Adam Wixted's lay-off before, four minutes after that, Alan O'Sullivan clinically found the net from a Luke Wade Slater pass.

An Eamon Scannell header gave Matthew Tipton’s men a half-time lead, only for strikes from Stephen Ball and Alan O’Sullivan at the start of the second half to turn the game on its head.
