BALLYCLARE UPSET THE FORM BOOK
Ballyclare Comrades upset the form book to defeat leaders Newry City at The Showgrounds.
The Comrades hadn't picked up a league win since mid-October while Darren Mullen's City, with an eight point advantage at the top, hadn't lost from around the same time.
But that all counted for nothing at a foggy Showgrounds which saw the visitors emerge victorious courtesy of Ciaran Heggarty's stunning 30-yard drive towards the end of the first half.
Just before that Newry might have broken the deadlock but Daniel Hughes was denied by Jack Ferguson with the rebound going into the side netting.
Newry did see a lot of the ball after the break but they failed to turn their possession into anything productive in front of goal and thus slipped to a first defeat in over two months.
