New pacesetters Two Mile Borris B came from 2-0 down to secure victory against League Division 4 overnight leaders Dualla in this top of the table clash at Newhill Park, Littleton last Sunday.

The visitors took the lead after just 5 minutes through Laurence Hickey and made it 2-0 after 17 minutes when Derek Hayes found the net. Just before the break Two Mile Borris B, looking for a quick return back up a division had a penalty saved.

After the changeover, Two Mile Borris threw caution to the wind and were back on level terms at 2-2 on 63 minutes when Philip Grace kept his composure to lob the ball over the keeper. Two Mile Borris reserves continued to turn the screw and snatched victory from the jaws of defeat when Philip Grace added his second of the afternoon on 78 minutes curling the ball into the top corner.
