ARDS SECURE TOP SIX PLACE
Ards made sure of a post-split top six place with victory over HW Welders at Tillysburn Park.
Caoimhin McConnell opened the scoring for John Bailie's side midway through the first half, a lead they held until just before the hour when Scott Davidson levelled for the Welders from the spot.
However, Ards made sure of the points - and a second win over the Welders this season - when Kym Nelson stepped up four minutes from time to slot home the second penalty of the game.
