DUNGANNON 1 CRUSADERS 1
Crusaders were left frustrated after being held by a stubborn Dungannon Swifts side at Stangmore Park.
They had trailed to Ryan Harpur’s deflected goal in the 57th minute.
A quickfire equaliser from Paul Healey brought them level, but Swifts held on for a point.
The deadlock was broken in the 57th minute – and it was Dungannon who took a shock lead.
Harpur tried his luck from distance and his effort took a big deflection, leaving Sean O’Neill helpless in the visitors’ goal.
But Swifts’ lead was short-lived, with the Crues back on level terms three minutes later.
Again there was an element of luck as Heatley’s strike was semi-blocked by Coleman, but still had enough power to find the net.
