A few good through balls from Cameron and Cillian seen Jamie go through but portadown keeper was in good form and produced a good few saves. Deadlock was finally broke when the Cookstown team got a free kick on the right and was hit by Zack Nellins, the ball hitting the roof of the net to get his 14th goal of the season and see the boys go in at half time, 1 nil up.
There wasn’t much between the sides and both teams created good chances but Riley was having a good game and making some great saves. It was the keeper Riley who created the second goal with a long kick right up the pitch over the defenders heads, one bounce and a good strike from Jamie Loughran who has been in a decent run of form made it 2 nil.
