CRUES STORM BACK FROM EARLY GOAL
Crusaders stormed back from going behind to an early goal to cruise to victory over Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.
The Swifts moved in front as early as the fourth minute through Rhyss Campbell who beat Johnny Tuffey with a powerful close range header after Ryan Mayse had delivered the ball from the right.
Crusaders levelled seven minutes later, however, after keeper Declan Dunne and Adam Lecky both challenged for a high ball before it broke free for Lecky to tap home.
The Crues then edged in front midway through the first half courtesy of a Paul Heatley rifled finish high into the net from eight yards after he had been played through by BJ Burns.
That was how it stayed until ten minutes from time when Heatley doubled his tally with a sweeping finish past Dunne for Jordan Forsythe's left-sided cross.
Brandon Doyle then added a fourth on 86 minutes from the rebound after Heatley's initial effort had been well kept out by Dunne.
Dungannon grabbed a 92nd minute consolation when, from James Knowles' corner, Ben Gallagher whistled an effort into the net.
