SEASIDERS AND SWANS IN TEN GOAL THRILLER

Bangor and Newington to an equal share of the spoils from an entertaining ten goal thriller at the Bangor Fuels Arena.

The game got off to a remarkable start with four goals inside the opening 17 minutes.

Ethan Devine kicked the scoring off after four minutes with a close range finish after a corner wasn't cleared to give Newington the lead.

However, Matthew Johnston levelled soon after for the Seasiders with Gerard McMullan making it 2-0 on 11 minutes with a 25-yard drive into the top corner before Ben Arthurs added a third after breaching the visiting defence to slot beyond Marc Maybin.

It tooks the Swans until the early stages of the second half to strike back but they did so with two goals in quick succession.

Conor Downey reduced the arrears on 50 minutes after finding time and space to beat Michael Dougherty with Devine doubling his tally four minutes later following some poor home defending.

And still the goals kept coming. Arthurs restored Bangor's lead just after the hour from point blank range but Aodhfionn Casey made it 4-4 not long after with a header from a corner.

Newington then regained the lead themselves on 82 minutes courtesy of an Anto McGonnell finish, although they had to ultimately settle for a point when substitute Michael Halliday prodded home Bangor's fifth in stoppage time.
