LATE FLOURISH EARNS ANNAGH A POINT

Championship leaders Annagh United fought back from two goals down to earn a point away to Ballyclare Comrades.

Scoreless at the break, Cillin Gilmour fired Ballyclare in front moments after the interval when the officials ruled his effort had crept over the line despite an attempted clearance.

Then, five minutes after that, he doubled the home lead with a free-kick from distance which dipped just under the bar.

That was how it stayed until seven minutes from time when Craig Taylor tucked the ball inside the far post on the counter attack.

And Annagh secured a point in the sixth minute of added time when Niall McGinley found the net in a dramatic finale to the game.
