IN A QUITE remarkable game of football on Monday night, Whitchurch Alport showed all their fighting qualities with a stunning comeback against Daisy Hill. 

The home side – beaten 7-0 at home on Saturday – roared into a three-goal lead within 17 minutes to stun Alport’s superb travelling support. 

But four goals in 11 minutes towards the end of the half turned the game completely on its head to give Alport a 4-3 half-time advantage. 

The pace in the second half was equally frenetic and although the goal fest wasn’t quite as regular as the first 45, the Reds netted three more to run out 7-3 winners.
