MOONEY AT THE DOUBLE FOR BALLYCLARE
An Andrew Mooney double helped Ballyclare Comrades defeat Dergview at Darragh Park.
Scoreless at the break, both goals came midway through the second half.
The 24-year-old opened the scoring on 63 minutes with a back post header six yards out after Tom Mathieson had knocked the ball over following a mazy run.
And Mooney doubled his tally just five minutes later when, following a botched attempt at a clearance, he dispossessed a defender to tuck the ball past keeper Alan Buchanan.
Benny Igiehon pulled one back for Dergview with ten minutes remaining but it wasn't enough to spark a late comeback.
