VILLAGERS DEFEAT LEADERS ARDS
Leaders Ards slipped to a narrow one-goal defeat to Loughgall at Lakeview Park.
Scoreless at the break, the only goal of the game came after an hour when Andrew Hoey ran onto a flick into the area to take the ball past Conall McGrandles and fire beyond Brian Neeson inside the near post.
Loughgall might have doubled their advantage moments later only for Pablo Andrade to turn an effort against an upright.
Ards ended the game with ten men following Jaimie McGovern's dismissal for a challenge on Dale Malone.
