UK: Wonder goal helps Coleraine to victory (+video)

Posted in UK Football by peterbein on September 3, 2011

A wonder goal from Johnny Black helped Coleraine FC win their latest match at home to Portadown FC in the Northern Ireland Premiership.

His goal helped restore parity to the game after the visitors took the lead through Kevin Braniff in the fifth minute of the game. Following Black’s wonder goal in the 17th minute Tim Mouncey put Portadown back in front with just three minutes of the first half remaining only for the home side to equalize in stoppage time through Shane Jennings. The game continued in topsy-turvy fashion after the break as Coleraine took the lead for the first time midway through the second half thanks to Stephen Lowry but Portadown would ensure a grandstand finish as Jamie Tomelty made it 3-3 with five minutes to play. The winning goal in this entertaining contest came with two minutes left on the clock as Lowry bagged his second goal of the game to seal all three points for the home side who now lie in seventh place in the twelve team Premiership.

For Portadown they were left to rue the dropped points as perennial champions Linfield FC moved three points ahead at the top of the table thanks to a 2-1 away win at Ballymena whilst Cliftonville moved above Portadown into second place with a narrow 1-0 win over Glentoran which was secured in the last minute through Ryan Catney.
