THREE FRIDAY NIGHT POINTS FOR BALLYCLARE
Ballyclare Comrades defeated Dundela by a single first half goal at Dixon Park to move level with the leaders on points at the top of the Lough 41 Championship.
The Comrades crafted the first chance of the night after nine minutes when Chris Ramsey sent a header from a Liam McKenna corner onto the crossbar before the ball fell to safety.
What proved to be the winner came with just over a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock after a mix-up in the Dundela defence allowed Andy Mooney to set up McKenna to score from a tap in.
The rest of the game was an entertaining, end to end encounter but Ballyclare held on to secure all three points although keeper Richard Purcell had to be alert in the closing minutes to thwart a header from Guillaume Keke as the visitors searched for an equaliser.
