High flying Moyola Park continued their impressive start to the season with this six-goal trouncing of Ballymoney United.

Jason Paul opened the scoring in the first minute with a thumping shot past Bryan Moore before doubling his tally just five minutes later.

Chris Dowie then added a third for Moyola on seven minutes to complete a frenetic opening few minutes for the rampant visitors.

Dowie made it 4-0 two minutes into the second half with a calm finish beyond Moore before laying claim to the match ball with his hat-trick nine minutes after that, a well executed volley from the edge of the area.

Michael Walsh completed the scoring three minutes from time after getting on the end of an accurate Eugene Gallagher pass.
