BALLARD WINNER GETS VILLAGERS OFF THE MARK

AN INJURY time Jude Ballard strike earned Loughgall their first win of the campaign at the expense of Coagh United.

Coagh moved in front after just three minutes when Loughgall 'keeper Jamie McArdle upended Stephen Lamont inside the area with Jason Gillespie stepping up to convert from the spot.

The Villagers might have levelled three minutes into the second half only for Niall Lavery's spot-kick to be saved by home 'keeper William Hassan.

But Loughgall did equalise on 58 minutes after Wesley Boyle delivered a cross for Aaron Haire to nod home at the back post.

Lavery then atoned for his penalty miss four minutes later with a low 25-yard drive that crept inside the post.

However, Coagh made it 2-2 five minutes after that when unlucky Loughgall defender Adam Rodgers inadvertently turned a Gillespie cross into his own net.

Loughgall had the last laugh, though, a minute into stoppage time when Ballard unleashed his match winning 25-yard drive into the top corner.
