Gareth McConaghie nets the opener for Coleraine from a Ciaron Harkin free-kick after nine minutes. Ball appears to hit McConaghie's arm on way in. Jordan Forsythe connects with Gavin Whyte's cross to head in a deserved equaliser three minutes into the second half. The midfielder nets again to give the Crues the lead with a low finish into the bottom corner. However, there's a quick response from the Bannsiders as Jamie McGonigle slips the ball past keeper Brian Jensen from a tight angle. The hosts go back in front on 75 minutes with Declan Caddell slotting in after an Aaron Traynor blunder.
