'POINT HOLD ON
Warrenpoint Town survived a HW Welders fightback to claim the win at Milltown.
Adam Wixted opened the scoring with a great finish after six minutes, and doubled the home advantage right at the end of the first half following a good team move.
Ryan Swan made it 3-0 not long after the break with a tap in.
However Matthew Ferguson pulled one back for the Welders against the run of play just short of the hour, before reducing the deficit further a short time after that with a back post header.
But Barry Gray's side held on to ultimately secure all three points.
