Michael Collins grabbed the spotlight as a striker on Saturday - with the former Portadown midfield general helping guide Rectory Rangers to away-day glory.
Collins arrived at the Brownstown Park club as a summer signing with the aim of adding experience to Rectory’s backline.
However, manager Tony Bell turned to Collins to increase the attacking threat against Donaghmore and he responded with a first-half double.
Injury prevented Collins from adding to his tally but the brace - including a delightful long-range lob over the stranded goalkeeper - left Rangers with a 2-1 lead at half-time.
Gareth Smith then added two after the break to increase the gap to 4-1.
Two goals in quick succession cut the gap before a Rectory red card - however Colin Corkin closed the afternoon with a crucial fifth goal.
“Not many sides will get anything from a visit to Donaghmore,” said Bell. “It was a really good win over probably the best side we have faced.
“We worked hard, especially after a red card.
“There was a sense of relief at the final whistle after leading 4-1 then Donaghmore getting it back to 4-3.
“Mickey was very good, with Philip Pedlow and Gareth Smith also strong as part of a quality team display.”
