GLENAVON HIT FOUR PAST THE CRUES
Glenavon swept to a 4-2 victory over Crusaders at Mourneview Park to move into seventh spot.
Scoreless for over half-an-hour, the Lurgan Blues held a strong lead at the break after a couple of goals late in the first half.
Peter Campbell opened the scoring on 36 minutes after controlling the ball and firing a low left-foot strike into the far right corner past Johnny Tuffey.
Then, four minutes after that, Matthew Fitzpatrick made it 2-0 from close range after a Campbell cross wasn't cleared.
The Crues pulled one back just three minutes into the second half through Philip Lowry who was on hand to knock home the rebound after Rory Brown had done well to keep out Dean Ebbe's effort.
But Glenavon restored their two-goal lead just a couple of minutes after that with Campbell's second of the game, another left-foot strike after Aaron Prendergast had teed him up down the right.
Back came Crusaders with 20 minutes remaining and a superb Billy Joe Burns effort from around 20 yards ... but the issue was settled on 87 minutes when Jarlath O'Rourke unfortunately headed into his own net whilst attempting to direct the ball back to Tuffey.
