DONNELLY GRABS HAT-TRICK AS GLENS HIT FIVE

Jay Donnelly hit a hat-trick as Glentoran swept to a 5-1 victory over Portadown at the BetMcLean Oval.

Donnelly opened the scoring after 18 minutes with a header past Ondrej Mastny after meeting a Niall McGinn cross from left.

He doubled up just before the half-hour mark with a calm finish past the visiting keeper when he was teed up by Terry Devlin.

Glentoran extended their advantage in first half stoppage time through Danny Purkis' blast into an open net after Patrick McNally's poor header left Mastny stranded.

The Ports pulled one back ten minutes into the second half courtesy of Luke Wilson's header in off the underside of the bar from Mark Russell's corner.

However Purkis restored Glentoran's three-goal cushion moments later with his second of the afternoon, a low finish into the bottom left corner.

The Ports were reduced to ten men around the hour mark after Paul McElroy was dismissed for pushing Devlin.

Donnelly completed the scoring on 64 minutes with his hat-trick goal, a back post header from Purkis' right-sided delivery.
