FIVE STAR ANNAGH CRUSH TEN MAN COMRADES

Annagh United stormed to a comprehensive home victory over Ballyclare Comrades to pick up their first success of the new Lough 41 Championship campaign.
 
Peter Duffin needed just seven minutes to open the scoring when he beat Comrades keeper Jack Ferguson to an aerial challenge before finding the net.
 
Ballyclare's start to proceedings got even worse with just over a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock when Elliot McKim was shown a red card for bringing down Stephen Murray just outside the box.
 
And it was Murray who made it 2-0 just before the half-hour mark when he ran onto a Duffin cross before, a couple of minutes after that, the unmarked Jordan Campbell added a third from Niall Henderson's free-kick.
 
Seemingly scoring for fun, Craig Taylor became the next player to find the net when, four minutes from the break, he fired into the bottom corner.
 
The visitors did grab a consolation with 12 minutes through Chris Ramsey but Ruairi McDonald restored Annagh's four-goal cushion right at the end with a superb 25-yard finish into the bottom corner.
