Laurelvale scored three goals on the way to three points - but goalkeeper Ashleigh Gracey proved the pick of the players against Craigavon City.

Key saves by Gracey left City frustrated as Laurelvale proved sharp on the break.

Stephen Whitten raced into the box from midfield to convert good work by David Sinton and Brendan Connolly.

Whitten then reacted first after a good save off Simon Foster’s free-kick.

Foster’s angled drive made it 3-0.
