NEFL Division One

Redeemer Celtic 3-4 Bay FC

Travis Crowley was the hero for Bay FC as they edged a seven-goal derby with Redeemer Celtic at Gorman Park on Sunday.

The teenage substitute directed past Dane Harrison with just minutes left in a thriller as Neven Novosel provided his third assist of the fixture.

Bay had led 2-0 early on with Alfonso Crespo and Stephen Woods on target, before Ryan Dillon brought Redeemer back into contention.

The winners had a goal chalked off prior to Paddy Connor slotting home their third, only for Shane English to make it 3-2 at the break.

Ray McCann drew Redeemer level in the second half, but Crowley produced a winner after the hosts had lost Conor Macken to a red card. McCann and Novosel would also receive their marching orders before the finish.
