Institute 1 Linfield 1
Paddy McLaughlin fired home a late equaliser to earn Institute a deserved draw against Linfield in their Danske Bank Premiership clash at Drumahoe.
The visitors took a deserved lead shortly before the half-hour through Stephen Lowry.
Paul Kee’s side started the brighter of the two in the second period with Stephen Curry unfortunate not to equalise on two occasions
First, keeper Tuffey reacted brilliantly to keep the sides level and he could only look as a Curry effort hit a post shortly afterwards.
The Drumahoe men finally got the goal they deserved in the 86th minute, McLaughlin heading home a Cormac Burke free kick after Tuffey misread the cross.
