THREE FIRST HALF GOALS SEAL THE POINTS FOR GLENAVON

Three first half goals proved enough for Glenavon to defeat bottom of the table Warrenpoint Town at Milltown.

After a fairly quiet opening to proceedings Peter Campbell might have broken the deadlock when he worked his way into space inside the box but was thwarted by 'Point keeper Conor Mitchell.

The deadlock was broken after 29 minutes when Robert Garrett played the ball through for Matthew Fitzpatrick to run through and lift the finish above the advancing Mitchell.

Glenavon doubled their advantage on 44 minutes. Gavin Peers was adjudged to have clipped Campbell inside the box and from the resulting penalty Michael O'Connor stepped up to fire past Mitchell despite the keeper guessing the right way.

And a third arrived in first half stoppage time to effectively kill the game off when, after a corner was only partially cleared, he returned a half volley blazing into the net.

Gary Hamilton's might have extended their advantage after the break but Mitchell turned a shot onto the crossbar, although this was followed at the other end by a Danny Wallace cross which came looping off the woodwork. Josh Doyle then came close with a shot against an upright.
