McMAHON GRABS BRACE AS ARDS SLIP TO FIRST DEFEAT

Matthew McMahon scored twice as Loughgall inflicted a first defeat of the season upon Ards.

Both goals arrived in the second half. On 52 minutes the former Portadown man took the ball past Greg Hall before switching onto his right foot to send a low shot under Ryan Brown.

He doubled his tally with just under a quarter-of-an-hour remaining after Daniel Ryan showed great pace down the right, taking the ball past John Convery before delivering a cross for McMahon to slot home.
