ARDS TOO STRONG FOR BALLYCLARE

Ards swept to a 4-2 victory over Ballyclare Comrades at Dixon Park to move back into fifth spot in the standings.

Ards might have moved in front as early as the opening minute when presented with a penalty but Kyle Calderwood's spot-kick was saved by Jack Ferguson.

The deadlock was broken on ten minutes, however, when Ciaran Heggarty nodded Ballyclare in front from Ian Fletcher's free-kick.

However, two goals in quick succession midway through the first half tipped the balance in Ards' favour.

Conall McGrandles levelled on 21 minutes with a header from Patrick Cafolla's corner before, four minutes after that, Ross Arthurs made it 2-1 with a finish in off an upright.

Ards further extended their advantage just before the hour when Cafolla found the net but Ballyclare came back into proceedings on 73 minutes through Chris Ramsey's header from Ashton McDermott's cross.

But Salou Jallow made sure of the points for Ards deep into stoppage time after rounding Ferguson to calmly slot home.
