HIGHLIGHTS from yesterday’s win at Carrick Rangers are now available to watch on the club’s official YouTube channel…
Coleraine would make the perfect start as Eoin Bradley broke the deadlock on 12 minutes as he powered home from close range. However, Carrick responded on 26 minutes as Stewart Nixon was fouled inside the box by Gareth McConaghie, with Caolan Loughran dispatching the resulting spot kick.
On the stroke of half-time, Coleraine would regain the lead as Nedas Maciulaitis’ shot was deflected into the net by Loughran. On 63 minutes, the lead was stretched even further as Aaron Jarvis headed in at the back post, with Aaron Traynor completing the scoring with his first goal in Coleraine colours.
In a late flurry of chances, Carrick ‘keeper Aaron Hogg was alert to deny Maciuliaitis and Alexander Gawne from adding to the scoreline.
