FOOTBALL: New Year win for Coleraine

Coleraine stormed to a 3-0 lead at home to Cliftonville on Saturday.

Goals from Boyce, Ogilby and Lowry looked to have the tie won, but Cliftonville put up a good battle to pull the score back to 3-2.

Ciaran Caldwell's strong finish just before half-time boosted Cliftonville.

Skipper Chris Scannell scored a second 10 minutes from time and they had a penalty claim rejected when Stephen Garrett was booked for diving.

Cliftonville felt Paddy McLaughlin's challenge had been a foul but the referee issued the yellow card to Garrett instead.
