Crusaders were finding the going tough at the start and the Colts took a deserved first half lead with a well taken goal from Sean Lyons. Crusaders slowly settled into the game. Ronan O’Donnell and Conor Lynch put in some good work for Crusaders, and despite a missed penalty, they soon scored through Jason Dunne to leave the half time score at one a piece.In the 2nd half the Crusaders seized the initiative and pressed for another goal but Sean Ryan was showing safe hands in the Colts goal. A glorious strike from 25 yards from Keelan Browne and a late penalty by Conor Thompson sealed a 3 – 1 win for Crusaders. Cormac O’Donnell had a super game for the Colts with Kian Mulligan simply outstanding in defence for Crusaders.
