Although two goals down at one stage, Stow came back from the dead to book their passage into the second round of the Waddell Cup.

Legion got off to an early lead when Darrel Johnstone hit a shot into the net after the Stow keeper had parried a Scott Duncan free kick.

Minutes into the second period, Chris Dunne put the home side further ahead when blasting home a shot from close range.

However, it all went wrong for Legion.

Stow hit back through Johnny Crawford to reduce the leeway – and Ryan Clapperton equalised.

In the latter stages of the game, Stow’s Declan Leckie snatched the winner.
