Castle Rangers overcame a tough challenge in Ballitore as they came from behind to beat Mill Celtic.

Mill opened the scoring in the opening ten minutes after a long ball up the field found Dylan Wynne and he managed to loft the ball over the onrushing keeper. Mill continued to put Castle Rangers under pressure and they nearly added to their lead when Gary Lambe came close with a header, but it went just wide.

Castle Rangers finished the half strongly, but they failed to create any clear-cut chances as Mill went in 1-0 up at half-time.

With the wind in their back, Castle Rangers managed to find their way back into the game and equalised early on after the restart when David O’Regan swung in a free and he found Podge Delaney at the back post, who headed home from close range.

Mill had opportunities to retake the lead with Andy Horan coming close with their best opportunity in this spell. Castle Rangers took the lead from another set piece as O’Regan hit in another free and it evaded everybody to go in.

A couple of chances fell for each side as the game came to its conclusion. Roy Byrne came close for Castle Rangers as his 30-yard strike struck the post while Wynne came close to getting his second for Mill in the dying moments as his free hit the crossbar. Castle Rangers held on for the win and the best players for them were Stu Connolly, Musa Suliman and Mick McGrath while the best for Mill were Felix Lawler, Eric Mackey and Dylan Wynne.
