SECOND HALF DOUBLE EARNS DERGVIEW THE POINTS
Two goals midway through the second half saw Dergview defeat Ballyclare Comrades at Darragh Park.
Scoreless at the break, Ballyclare came close to open the scoring on a number of occasions. Ciaran Heggarty flashed a header just wide early on before turning provider to tee up Gary Donnelly to send a 20-yard effort the wrong side of the target.
Heggarty continued to be a threat, with another header coming from a Lee McCune cross while, early in the second half, he twice tested Dergview keeper Alan Buchanan albeit with no success.
However, that all counted for nothing on 67 minutes when the home side moved in front courtesy of Cathal Farren's successfully converted spot-kick.
Then, just six minutes after that, it was 2-0 after a good team move teed Matthew Kirk up to beat Richard Purcell with a sublime finish.
