Warrenpoint Town have beaten Linfield for the first time in the club's history.

Barry Gray's men hit back from a goal down to win 2-1 at Milltown last night.

The 'Point manager said: "It's a massive three points for us first and foremost, and a huge result.

"I was probably a bit disappointed to go behind, but our hard work and management of the game in the second half was what won it for us.

"Our willingness to keep working and break up their play as much as we did was impressive, and it is great to finally get a win against Linfield after trying for so long." 

Blues boss David Healy said it was a shocking performance from the defending champions:

Larne top the Danske Bank Premiership after a 2-0 win at Coleraine. David McDaid bagged both goals for Tiernan Lynch's team.

Glentoran thrashed Dungannon 5-1, Cliftonville had a 5-0 win over Portadown - Michael McCrudden hit a hat-trick - and Glenavon beat Crusaders 3-1.

Here's how they stand after all that:

Larne are due to meet the Glens in the Shield final on Wednesday, if it happens:

Armagh Ladies have missed out on a place in the All-Ireland football final.

They lost by five points against defending champions Dublin in Cavan.

And in snooker Mark Allen has been knocked out of the UK Championship.

The Antrim man crashed to a 6-5 second-round defeat against 18-year-old Chinese player Chang Bingyu.
