ALL SQUARE AT FERNEY PARK
Ballinamallard United and Ards served up two goals, one red card and a missed penalty in their Lough 41 Championship clash at Ferney Park.
Ards moved in front on 18 minutes after David McAllister tapped the ball home from Salou Jallow's low cross.
The Mallards were presented with a great opportunity to level on 20 minutes after Callum Moorehead had been upended by Conall Young but BJ Banda's subsequent penalty was well saved by Ards keeper Brian Neeson.
The visitors were reduced to ten men after an hour following Thomas Murray's dismissal for a second caution.
And Ballinamallard took advantage just five minutes after that when Banda atoned for his earlier spot-kick by striking a stunning 25-yard first time effort past Neeson just inside the left post.
