Ards maintained their unbeaten start to the season with victory over Dergview.

Ross Arthurs opened the scoring after seven minutes with a header past Jack Boggs from a Neil Dougan cross.

Dergview levelled on 34 minutes courtesy of a Steven Sheridan follow up after Richard Lecky saw an effort blocked by Graeme McKibbin.

But Ards regained the lead on 65 minutes with Arthurs' second of the game, a superbly struck volley into the top corner after initially controlling the ball with his chest.

And substitute Craig McMillen made sure of the points eight minutes from time after Arthurs turned provider to set up the opportunity.
