HONOURS EVEN AT MILLTOWN

Warrenpoint Town and Portadown earned a share of the spoils at Milltown to leave both sides sitting on four points after three games.
 
The Ports created the better of the early chances, with Chris Lavery, Stephen Murray and Ruairi Croskery all seeing efforts blocked or cleared while Murray had a later shot saved by Gabriel Sava.
 
Then, on 16 minutes, Murray went one better to open the scoring when he sent a blistering strike past Sava from the right side of the box.
 
At the other end Ports keeper Ben Pierce twice denied Kealan Dillon before George Tipton was forced to make a goalline clearance.
 
'Point did get back on level terms seven minutes into the second half, however, when Matthew Knox's low left-foot effort from outside the box seemed to go through Pierce's hands.
 
Warrenpoint were reduced to ten men after the hour when Deasy picked up a second booking in quick succession.
 
Despite this, Barry Gray's side twice threatened in the latter stages of the game. Dillon had a go from distance albeit straight at Pierce while Fra McCaffrey was also denied by the Ports keeper.
 
Then, deep into added time, Gavin Peers became the second 'Point player to receive his marching orders, again for a second caution.
