A two goal salvo from Tiarnan Rafferty was enough to secure a point from NIFL Championship 2 season opener at Seahaven as Paul Muir’s regime gets off to a decent start.
The prolific former Kilrea United hit man gave Wakehurst a 1-0 lead with his first competitive goal for the club.
Portstewart levelled with a goal from a corner before taking the lead. With time running out Rafferty poked home a real poacher’s effort at the back post and seal a point from an entertaining game.
Final Score: Portstewart 2-2 Wakehurst
Starting Team: M. Cairns, R. Young, A. Millar, K. Steele (C), K. McCartney, L. McClelland, L. McCaughern, A. Laughlin, D. Larkin, J. Foster, T. Rafferty.
