ARDS TWICE FIGHT BACK AT HOME TO COMRADES

Ards and Ballyclare Comrades shared four goals in an entertaining encounter at the Bangor Fuels Arena.

The visitors moved in front after 20 minutes when a Jordan Malone free-kick into the box was adjudged to have been handled by William Armstrong with Joe Tully stepping up to convert from the spot-kick that followed.

Kym Nelson levelled for Ards just after the half-hour mark with a header from six yards after he was picked out by a set piece from the left.

Ballyclare regained the advantage a couple of minutes from the break with Tully's second of the afternoon, a lob over keeper Brian Neeson after Tom Mathieson had delivered a long ball forward.

Ards might have restored parity early in the second half when Michael McLellan sent a long range effort against the crossbar but they did equalise again just before the hour thanks to Craig McMillen's rifled finish after a David McAllister effort rebounded out to him.
