Coleraine drop points to title rivals Omagh thumbnailColeraine’s Kitty Dickson celebrates her goal with team-mate Zoe Purdy.

COLERAINE 1st XI dropped two points on Saturday as they drew 1-1 with Omagh despite creating enough chances to put the result beyond doubt.
Trailing second placed Coleraine by four points in the league but with two games in hand, Omagh saw this as an opportunity to narrow the gap. With the game ten minutes old Omagh looked on course to do just that when they caught Coleraine on the break to score the opening goal.
It was a rare lapse in concentration for the defensive line in what was possibly their most solid performance of the season to date.
Coleraine quickly went back on the attack and tried to convert their possession into goals. It was Kitty Dickson who raced onto the pitch as a substitute and expertly latched onto a pin-point cross from Laura Todd on the right wing to level the scores.
