Loughgall 1 – 1 Glebe Rangers

Loughgall extended their unbeaten run to four games with a determined performance as they drew with Glebe Rangers.

Loughgall opened the scoring after only buylasix nine minutes when Martin Murray’s 25-yard free kick deflected off the defensive wall and past the wrong-footed goalkeeper Brian Kane.

Murray almost netted again in the 29th minute when Paul Carville set him up for a first-time shot that was well saved by Kane.

Four minutes later Glebe had an excellent opportunity as Owen Moody robbed the ball from Alan Murphy however the forward was denied by ‘keeper Marc Robinson who rushed out to save at his feet.

Loughgall missed a couple of good chances to extend their advantage in the second half; firstly Darragh Peden couldn’t keep his effort on target after good play by Daniel Ryan and then Murphy headed narrowly over from Marty Verner’s corner delivery.

On 73 minutes Alan Sheppard thought he had equalised for Rangers as he powered a header towards goal only to see Robinson gratefully clutch the ball out of the air.  Two minutes later Glebe levelled when Peter Kennoway connected to a corner with a volley that flashed past ‘keeper Robinson.
