BANDA BAGS HAT-TRICK AS MALLARDS WIN ON THE ROAD
BJ Banda grabbed a hat-trick as Ballinamallard United travelled to defeat Annagh United 4-2 away from home.
The South African born 23-year-old opened the scoring with just two minutes on the clock before Peter Duffin levelled for Annagh midway through the first half.
Banda restored the visitors advantage just after the half-hour mark with Niall Grace bagging a third a few minutes after that.
Ruairi McDonald reduced the deficit just before the break with a 20-yard drive but, with 66 minutes gone, Banda edged the Mallards further in front once more from the spot.
