CRUES MARK RETURN WITH A WIN

Crusaders marked their return to action following their enforced break with victory over Warrenpoint Town at Milltown.

The Crues moved in front on 17 minutes when Johnny McMurray followed up with the finish after 'Point keeper saved Paul Heatley's initial effort.

It was 2-0 ten minutes after that following Adam Lecky's glancing header from a corner but the home side responded quickly to pull a goal back when Alan O'Sullivan converted from the spot after referee Lee Tavinder awarded a penalty for handball.

Warrenpoint's comeback was complete seven minutes into the second half with O'Sullivan's second of the game when, despite Declan Caddell's best efforts to clear, he squeezed the ball home from an acute angle.

Crusaders regained the lead just after the hour, however, thanks to a Heatley finish past Mitchell after Ben Kennedy had found him with a perfectly delivered pass.

'Point were reduced to ten men with seven minutes remaining when Daniel Byrne received a second booking following a challenge on Kennedy ... and Kennedy himself completed the scoring a couple of minutes after that when he raced clear on the counter attack.
