Fought Back To Earn Draw

Lurgan Town NL14 hosted Sion Swifts in the National League and played out an entertaining game coming from 2 down to level the game.

Town started tentatively with Sion having the better of the opening but after 15 minutes Town improved and were playing some good football. They were unfortunate to go behind woth Sion’s first goal being offside. Town responded well and were playing some good football Jamie Gillis and Nathan Bell getting in behind the back line continuously but several chances were wasted. Daniel Pepper’s free kick clattered the bar and Daniel Greer put the rebound over. Just after half time Sion got another goal after some confusion in the box.

To the boys credit they were playing all the football and eventually were rewarded Rhys Emerson shot rebounded off the crossbar and Nathan Bell finished well. Town continued to press and again missed several chances with some of the interchanging passing and play superb. They eventually were rewarded after Rhys Emerson was fouled in the box Jamie McKeown stepped up and fired home the penalty. A really good performance from the boys with some superb football when a win was deserving on the day.
