It’s two from two for Swifts Reserves

THE Swifts Reserves made it two league wins from two at Ingram Park in a game that never really seemed to have any other outcome.

Rathfriland opened the scoring through Niall Maginn, the winger racing onto a through ball before calmly slotting past the onrushing keeper.

Maginn would again have the ball in the net, only for it to be disallowed. Rathfriland pressed for a second which arrived through Jordan Mark. He met an inviting cross from the right, volleying it into the bottom corner.

Against the run of play, Donacloney pulled a goal back amid shouts for offside.

Within seconds of the second half restarting Rathfriland restored their two goal cushion. Niall Maginn was again involved, squaring the ball to Michael Morgan who finished confidently.

Rathfriland had the ball in the net again, only for it to be disallowed for offside.

Rathfriland controlled the game in midfield, creating a host of chances, the only thing missing was the finish.

As the game drew to a close Morgan added his second and Rathfriland’s fourth, and in the dying seconds Mark Patterson completed the scoring tapping in from close range.
