SECOND HALF DOUBLE SEES CARRICK SINK GLENS

Two goals midway through the second half saw Carrick Rangers come from behind to defeat Glentoran at the Loughview Leisure Arena.

It took the Glens just four minutes to break the deadlock when, following a scramble in the box started by a Bobby Burns inswinging corner, Marcus Kane pounced on the loose ball to fire home.

The visitors came close to doubling their lead with around a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock after Shay McCartan got past Albert Watson down the left but was ultimately denied by keeper Ross Glendinning.

Then, midway through the first half, Glendinning again denied the visitors with a diving save to keep out a Bobby Burns effort from inside the box.

After the break Patrick McClean had a go from distance only for the ball to curl wide of the left post, but as the game progressed Carrick seemed to look the more likely to score.

They might have levelled before the hour mark but Curtis Allen's effort took a deflection before Aaron McCarey could touch it over - and the Glentoran keeper thwarted Allen again after he had nodded on a Ben Tilney throw-in.

But, on 69 minutes, Stuart King's side did find their equaliser after Danny Purkis went on a run down the right before sending the ball over for Nedas Maciulaitis to turn home at the back post.

And, two minutes after that, what proved to be the winner arrived when Purkis bagged his third goal in as many games after connecting for Allen's cross.
